The Republic of Uganda is the world’s second most populous landlocked country. It is situated in East Africa and very much in need of humanitarian aid. A brief history of Uganda The country was ruled as a protectorate by the British since 1894. They quickly established administrative law across the entire territory. Recently, in 1962, Uganda gained independence. Since then, it has been plagued by civil wars and conflict. A case in point is the lengthy civil war against the Lord’s Resistance Army in which tens of thousands lost their lives. Museveni is the current president. He has been in office since his forces toppled the previous regime in January 1986. His period of reign is characterized by political turmoil, mainly caused by the urge to invade and occupy the Democratic Republic of the Congo during the Second Congo War. It resulted in an estimated 5.4 million deaths since 1998. Uganda still isn’t a stable country in terms of politics. Aid is much needed in other areas as well. Human rights violation, poverty, and natural calamities are still occurring.
