In July 2012, Uganda suffered a massive landslide attributed to flooding over the last few months that has damaged the country.

The landslide struck Bumwalukani, in Eastern Uganda.18 people have been confirmed dead, 109 were found buried in the mud and over 1,000 people are displaced.

Over 421 homesteads have been affected and close to 1000 people are left homeless, some of whom have lost their loved ones in the landslide. These include men, women, children and the elderly. Furthermore, the landslides have caused massive destruction of food crops that were ready for harvest. Uganda relies heavily on agriculture which makes the situation dire, especially with the threat of drought season quickly approaching.
