Index number: AFR 59/6422/2017. More than 900,000 refugees have fled the brutal conflict in South Sudan and sought safety in Uganda with over 1000 refugees arriving each day. Uganda has a progressive refugee policy which is lauded by the international community, however, states have failed in their obligation to help Uganda and have not provided an adequate response to this crisis. This has meant basic needs including access to food, water, sanitation, health care and shelter not being met. The report calls on donors to urgently meet financial needs and support for technical assistance required to support Uganda’s progressive refugee policy.
