South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Tanzania, Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Burundi and Kenya.
Uganda is currently hosting 1,061,892 South Sudanese refugees and asylum seekers throughout the country. The
URCS has been providing humanitarian support to refugees in the West Nile and South-Western region in the area of
emergency WASH, distribution of non-food items, food security, psychosocial support, health, restoring family links and
peace and conflict management. The focus of the activities revolves around: Due to the decreased influx from January to May 2018, during the Inter Agency meeting on June 1st, UNHCR and OPM
considered to revise the planned figures of refugee arrivals from South Sudan to Uganda in 2018 from 300,000 to
100,000. Nevertheless, considering the unpredictability of the situation in South Sudan, UNHCR and OPM are at the
same time aware that the influx could increase again in case of intensified hostilities in Western Equatoria or the
organization of political elections, planned for the end of2018. Bidibidi, Imvepi and Rhino
