As of 30 June 2018, the total number of South Sudanese refugees in Kenya is 114,492. At the end of June 2018, 94 percent of the South Sudanese refugees in Kenya resided in Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei Settlement, with a smaller precentage in Dadaab as well as urban areas such as Nairobi, Nakuru, Kitale and other areas. Refugees crossed to Kenya through the Nadapal Border in Turkana County, where Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei Settlement are situated. Out of the 58.2 percent of South Sudanese refugees in Kakuma, 88,309 are women and children with heightened protection risks.
The ongoing conflict and violence in South Sudan in the first half of 2018 further contributed to the continued internal displacement and outflow of refugees, further exacerbating the humanitarian situation.
