Uganda is hosting about 1.3 million refugees, of which an estimated 950,000 have arrived from South Sudan, displaced by the country’s escalating civil war.

“Many refugees have fled conflict in South Sudan, seeking sanctuary from violence, hatred and hunger. Uganda’s example of helping vulnerable people cope with displacement is an example for the whole region and the world,”

Christos Stylianides, the EU’s commissioner for humanitarian aid and crisis management, said in a statement, following EU’s offer of 85 million Euros to fund Uganda’s response.
