Uganda is currently hosting the highest number of refugees in the country’s history, and is receiving simultaneous emergency influxes from South Sudan, DRC and Burundi.

The number of South Sudanese refugees in Uganda has exceeded one million, and the daily arrival rate remains high. Arrivals from DRC have risen since Late December 2017. Chronic underfunding of the refugee response is threatening humanitarian organisations’ ability to continue delivering lifesaving and critical assistance.

06 Apr 2018 description

6,397 South Sudanese refugees arrived in Uganda during the month of March, at an average daily rate of 208, bringing the total number to 1,053,598.

Refugees report fleeing primarily out of fear of being killed by fighters from either side of the conflict inside South Sudan. Other reasons of flight include, hunger and lack of social services.

Despite the ceasefire agreement signed in December 2017 between the warring parties in South Sudan, the humanitarian situation remains unpredictable.
