Author : Rosemary Peter | Published: Wednesday, October 26, 2016

The UN refugee agency in Uganda has set new priorities to step up service delivery in camps housing South Sudanese refugees.

The Agency’s Spokesperson, Charles Yaxley, says improvement of infrastructure, identifying new water sources, and building schools are top on their list.

He says more than 300,000 South Sudanese refugees have arrived in Uganda this year alone.

Mr Yaxley says Bidibidi settlement, which was opened around two and a half months ago, is already one of the largest camps in the world, with more than160,000 South Sudanese refugees.

He says an estimated 2000-3000 South Sudanese arrive in Uganda refugee camps on daily basis.
