South Sudan Refugee Crisis

Liam Cunningham traveled to Uganda to meet South Sudanese refugees.

On the 6th of May, Liam Cunningham travelled with World Vision to Northern Uganda to meet South Sudanese refugees crossing the border into Uganda which is now the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world. To date, there are over 898,000 refugees in the West Nile region who have had to flee the conflict. This number is growing by over 2000 refugees daily.  86% of the refugees that have crossed over are women and children. 

During Liam Cunningham's time in Uganda, he visited our programmes Bidi Bidi and Imvepi settlement camps and met with the refugees that now call it home.
