Since 2016, nearly 1 million South Sudanese have fled the civil war in their young country flooding across the border into Uganda and neighboring countries. Stories of horrific atrocities – murder, rape, looting, disease, burning homes and famine – plague the people of this war-torn nation which celebrated its independence just six years ago. The fastest growing refugee crisis in the world, Uganda is now hosting more than 1.2 million refugees. An average of 2000 arrivals a day from South Sudan alone has resulted in an enormous strain being placed on the humanitarian response.. Last month, food rations were reportedly cut in half. As the civilians flee fighting in South Sudan, the humanitarian situation in neighboring Uganda is also dire. With no end in sight to the conflict in their home country, the future for families seeking food and shelter in Uganda also looks uncertain.
