STORYLINE
The recent fighting in South Sudan has forced thousands of South Sudanese to flee their homes. They crossed the border to Uganda in search of safety. Uganda already hosts over 200,000 South Sudanese refugees, many have fled the world’s youngest nation multiple times since the civil war in December 2013.

Lucy Lul and her family rode with a Ugandan military convoy sent to evacuate its own citizens.

Recalling her experience, she said “ when you know something is wrong, you open your ears and you know when people are going, when they are running. Many cars were coming from Juba. So we say, it came into our minds, that is war. There is a very big war coming.”

Fearing for the future of South Sudan, she said “I feel bad as you can see. I feel even to cry because everything we have is lost, our property, those people chasing you to the bush. You started to make a house, you started even to look for the school, when the people started...foundations are very difficult for us.”

UNHCR and partners are registering the new arrivals. They’re also providing urgent medical care and transportation to established refugee settlements. As the numbers grow, so do the challenges.

UNHCR Office Chief Hilamo Hussein Obsiye said “resources are always the big challenge cause we need to establish more reception centers, we need to establish also more settlements, we dont know how long this situation will continue so we have to be preparing for the worst scenario.”
