Third modification as of 28 October 2016
The on-going escalation of the conflict in South Sudan continues triggering major influx of refugees in Uganda. Since the beginning of July only, some 203 000 people have sought refuge in Uganda. More than 85% of them are women and children. The influx is continuing at a worrying trend resulting in up to 2 000 people crossing the border to Uganda in average every day. The estimated total number of South Sudanese refugees in Uganda is currently 508 977 people on a total of almost 790 000 refugees and asylumseekers (including 121 948 awaiting biometric registration) according to Government statistics.
The sudden influx of refugees from South Sudan since July continues creating significant gaps in particular in terms of registration, settlement capacities, protection of the most vulnerable and the provision of life-saving assistance.
In order to respond to these increasing humanitarian needs in Uganda, a total amount of EUR 9 000 000 has been mobilised to complement the response in view of the significance of the influx
