They run away from their countries to seek safety, however, they are far from safe. They have endured more violence than they ever imagined. Some have been raped by their clients, others now have disabilities and yet others are nursing various sexually transmitted diseases.
This is the story of women who fled war mainly from DR Congo, Rwanda, or South Sudan and took on sex work to fend for themselves and their families.
These horrid tales of abuse of local and refugee sex workers in Uganda are captured in a documentary titled ‘ENOUGH IS ENOUGH’, produced by Gender Empowerment and Rights Advocacy (OGERA) with the support of Red Umbrella Fund.
Ogera is a sex worker-led organisation that works with lesbians, bisexual and transgender women, Women who have Sex with Women and refugee sex workers living and working in Uganda.
