23 children are reported to have died of malaria, typhoid and malnutrition in the neighboring Rakai district. There are 4265 immigrants with over 500 children at Sango bay camp who were resettled there by Uganda government in August this year following their expulsion from Tanzania.
Leaders in the camp say many children are succumbing to various illnesses as a result of consuming contaminated water from Lukoma valley dam because they have no other option and they have do not received any medical and food supplies.
It has been reported that many patients are now stranded without drugs, lack clean water, food and mosquito nets. Local leaders are worried about a looming cholera outbreak because of poor human waste disposal.
