Mukwana Cyrus was outraged when Ms Rosa Malongo, (then UN Country Representative to Uganda) defined the refugee situation in the country as PATHETIC, despite the vast resources allocated to advance the lives of Refugees. He would later learn that the life of Refugees was far from what was being reported by government departments and other agencies that were purportedly geared towards uplifting the living standards of those persons. Worst of all, it was not the absence of resources but rather misuse and misappropriation of it that was contributing to such a pathetic situation. This didn’t just give birth to a rhetoric, it was the beginning of an advocacy that would breed social change and advance the lives of those in need by ensuring every ACTION counts.
Our work will be done, only when we see a society in which all individuals irrespective of origin or race, live life in all its fullness, are valued, protected, cared for, and given the opportunities to realize their full potential by making sure all resources are put to good use
