Starting July 1, 2012, Voice of America will be heard on Arua 1, broadcasting from Arua Town, Uganda on 88.7 FM.
Arua, located in northwest Uganda, borders both South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The area has become home to refugees from both South Sudan and DRC, and has become a significant trade center as a result. Arua FM will reach as many as 1.6 million people for Voice of America.
