Whereas the numbers of arrivals have come down as compared to the previous year, more refugees continue coming into Uganda. In January 2016, the number of new arrivals increased to over 300 per day.

Oxfam and our local partners CEFORD and ACORD have supported South Sudanese refugees and members of Ugandan host communities by providing clean water for drinking and household needs, improving sanitation facilities, and promoting good hygiene to prevent disease outbreaks like cholera. We also distribute energy-saving stoves and provide short-term jobs in a Cash-for-Work program.
