South Sudanese Refugees Flee to Uganda

26th July 2016

The volatile security situation in South Sudan has resulted in approximately 37,000 refugees fleeing to Uganda, with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) voicing serious concerns regarding violence. UNHCR is taking an active role to support Uganda as refugee centers struggle to cope with the influx due to limited capacity. They are currently attempting to orgnanize new settlement areas as quickly as possible and to acquire more funding to support their initiatives.
