Uganda’s ‘Urban Refugees’ – CBC The World This Weekend

KAMPALA, Uganda – As the violent conflict in South Sudan deepens, many people are fleeing to their next door neighbour. South Sudan is now the world’s fourth largest refugee situation behind Syria, Afghanistan, and Somalia, according to UNHCR, the UN’s refugee agency.

Over 110,000 South Sudanese have sought refuge in Uganda this year — three-quarters of them, since fighting resumed in July. Uganda allows new arrivals to settle anywhere in the country, and the UN says it’s a model for Africa. This story premiered online at the new CBC Listen, and aired on CBC The World This Weekend Oct. 1, 2016.
