The conflict in South Sudan continues to generate profound suffering, as the peace process remains fluid. The infighting has resulted in thousands of South Sudanese refugees fleeing into Uganda and especially West Nile and Northern Regions; Lamwo, Adjumani, Arua, Yumbe and Moyo Districts are the main recipients of the refugees. The Government of Uganda estimates that over 800,000 refugees have fled to Uganda since the beginning of the crisis in 2013. Current refugee influx stands between 400 to 600 refugees per day.
