Refugees in Ofua settlement turn to agriculture for survival
The refugees of Ofua settlement, an extension of Rhino camp in Terego district have found ways of sustaining their livelihood through farming.
The food rations for the refugees reduced by 50 percent at the onset of the COVID19 pandemic forcing the refugees to find alternatives.
GIZ this week distributed goats to refugee groups to boost their livelihoods.
Terego district is hosting 168,000 refugees and 210,000 host communities who solely depend on land for agricultural purposes.
Tobacco was known as the main cash crop in the area, but currently, many refugees and host communities have changed the narrative by embracing food crop farming.
