Image result for South Sudan refugees seek refuge in UgandaThe scale of the refugee crisis in Uganda is extraordinary, with average daily arrivals put at over 2,000 people.

The country now hosts the largest refugee population in Africa, over 1.2 million people, 74 percent from South Sudan.

Uganda has an open door policy towards refugees giving them land, work permits, freedom of movement and the means to start small farms.

The World Food Programme also provide food and cash to help refugees survive until they can become self-sufficient but the number of refugees it assists has more than doubled in the last year.
