KAMPALA Eddie Murray Jersey , June 22 (Xinhua) -- The European Union's relief agency has contributed 2 million Euros towards emergency nutrition and education response to the South Sudanese refugee crisis in Uganda.

European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) said in a joint statement on Wednesday that the money would go towards supporting the United Nations Children's Fund's (Unicef) response to the major nutrition and education needs of children within both refugee and host communities.

According to UN figures, over 750,000 South Sudanese refugees have arrived in Uganda since July 2016, with over 950,000 South Sudanese refugees now in the country since the beginning of the South Sudan crisis in December 2013.

Aida Girma, Unicef's Representative in Uganda said considering that 56 percent of the refugees are children, children are the face of the South Sudanese refugee crisis in Uganda.

A recent food security and nutrition assessment conducted in the refugee hosting districts shows high malnutrition rates, stunted development due to chronic malnutrition and high levels of anemia among children and women.

Uganda and the UN are this week scheduled to host an international refugee conference dubbed Solidarity Summit.

The meeting is aimed at raising over 8 billion dollars that would be used over the next four years to cater for the refugees in Uganda.

Uganda is now Africa's leading refugee-hosting country, having jumped from the eighth largest refugee-hosting country in the world in mid-2016 to the third largest today, after Turkey and Pakistan.

A man was killed in a shark attack Tuesday at the popular tourist destination of Byron Bay on Australia's east coast despite a beachgoer's rescue attempt, police said.

The beachgoer, Mark Hickey, swam 15-20 meters (50-65 feet) from the shore of Clarkes Beach to retrieve the man, who had sustained severe wounds to his right leg, Police Inspector Bobbie Cullen said.

The victim, a local man in his 50s whose name has not been released, received medical treatment on the beach but did not survive, Cullen said.

"A gentleman who was on the beach went out and located the gentleman and pulled him in," Cullen told reporters. "Absolutely it is (an extraordinary act of bravery) and we can only thank him for his efforts."

Hickey, a lawyer on vacation at Byron Bay, told Ten Network television news that he saw the shark and its bloodied victim and swam out to try to attempt a rescue as the shark attacked again.

"I went out there and, I don't know, I just thought I've got to get this guy in and that's what I tried to do," Hickey said.

He said he dragged the victim onto the beach and attempted to resuscitate him for 20 minutes, but the man had apparently bled to death in the water. Ten reported that the shark had bitten through the victim's wetsuit on his upper right thigh, tearing off much of his leg.

The leg wounds were being examined to identify the size and species of the shark.

Cullen said the crew of a rescue helicopter spotted what appeared to be a great white shark in the area after the suspected attack, but had lost sight of it. She said all Byron Bay beaches would be closed for 24 hours due to the potential danger.

Byron Bay is a renowned surfing location near Cape Byron, the most easterly point of the Australian mainland, about 800 kilometers (500 miles) north of Sydney.

The death is the first fatal attack in Australia since April 3, when a 63-year-old woman was taken by a 3-to-4-meter (10-to-13-foot) shark near the village of Tathra, 340 kilometers (210 miles) south of Sydney.

Although sharks are common off Australia's coasts, the country has averaged fewer than two fatal attacks per year in recent decades. But fatal attacks are becoming more common. Two men were killed in shark attacks off the east and west coasts in the space of a week in November last year. They were the only fatalities in 2013.



For many parents, the thought of living their children at home with people they cannot trust is traumatizing. They are always thinking about the welfare of the kids even when they are at work, which decreases their output. If you want to focus on your work, then you need to get a babysitter you can trust. With the tips below, you will get a live in nanny Atlanta would all love to have.

First, determine the cost. You must have a budget with which you can work. The cost of a baby sitter is affected by many factors. You will pay by the hour even though the individual will be living in your home. However, you can negotiate on a reduced Salary since you will be providing them with accommodation.

Factor in the taxes. Find out the state requirements regarding taxes.
