Voluntary repatriation of Somali refugees has continued, in spite of insecurity, drought, and forced evictions in their home country. The European Commission continues its long-standing assistance to refugees in Kenya and responds to disaster-related emergencies.
What are the needs?
In mid-2016, the conflict in South Sudan spread into the southern region of Equatoria, which borders Uganda. Officials registered 600,000 South Sudanese refugees crossing the border into northern Uganda between July 2016 and April 2017. Bidibidi settlement, in Uganda’s Yumbe district, was opened in August 2016 to accommodate some of this refugee flow. By December 2016 the settlement was closed to new arrivals as the largest refugee settlement in the world.
