Entry Description

A smiling South Sudanese refugee walks in-between the Lamow refugee camps in Northern Uganda and the NGO offices. The conflict in South Sudan has forced millions of people out of their homes and into these camps. Uganda has offered its land to the refugees and has accommodated over two million throughout the country. Busloads of refugees are dropped every day. The high commissioner at this camp said they receive 600-1000 people daily.
