ADJUMANI - Thousands of South Sudanese refugees face a daily struggle in Ugandan refugee settlements whilst dreaming of returning home.

The war that started last December killed thousands and forced over one million to leave their homes, according to the United Nations. Since the fighting started, just under 100,000 refugees have fled to northern Uganda, which borders South Sudan.

The Nyumanzi refugee settlement in Adjumani District is the region’s second largest with at least 22,000 refugees, but the crowded tent hospital is struggling to cope with the demand.
