Who We Are

Lacha Community and Economic Development (LCED) is a non-partisan, non-profit organization registered in South Sudan since 2008 (reg. No 113), which became operational since 2009, and was incorporated in Uganda since 2016 (reg. No 1209). We have been providing emergency relief and continued assistance to people in life-threatening situations, in the wake of disaster and/or with ongoing needs, operating both on mobile and static response, tackling Shelter/Non-Food Items (S/NFI) and Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) needs. 

In the past years LCED has successfully provided humanitarian assistance and empowered vulnerable displaced populations in Greater Equatoria through distribution of life-sustaining NFIs, construction of emergency shelters, hygiene promotion campaigns, revitalization of local market economy with cash-based interventions, mapping and rehabilitation of community assets (water points and sanitation facilities) and capacity building of affected communities. The most targeted people in need are women and girls, including pregnant and lactating mothers, children under 5, elderly, disabled and chronically ill persons, who are the most affected by the South Sudan conflict and the related multiple displacement. Additionally, we have been focusing on peace-building activities among South Sudanese refugees residing in Kampala, Uganda, in order to involve the South Sudanese diaspora to foster the peace process in their country of origin.
