Every minute a child is fleeing unimaginable violence in South Sudan.
The escalating conflict, drought and famine has forced nearly one million people into neighbouring Uganda.
Over 500,000 children have escaped. They are arriving terrified, hungry and often alone.
Our CEO Kevin Watkins, who recently met refugees on the border said:
“The numbers are extraordinary – at times up to 3000 people flood over the border each day, the majority are women and children.
It's fast becoming the largest African refugee displacement since the Rwandan genocide.”
With the huge influx of arrivals, vital services in refugee camps are at breaking point.
