Approximately 1.55 million people remain internally displaced within South Sudan, including many who are seeking shelter in remote rural areas, and approximately 138,600 people sheltering in Protection of Civilian sites (PoCs) in UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) bases across the country. As of 2 July, 600,758 South Sudanese refugees have fled to neighbouring countries, including to Kenya (46,237), Ethiopia (211,260), Sudan (187,747), and Uganda (155,514) (Source: UNHCR, 2 July 2015). The number of refugee arrivals in Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan has slowed in the past six months, partly due to improved stability and peace negotiations in South Sudan, but also due to the rainy season which has increased cross-border transportation fares.
