A refugee camp set up in August in northern Uganda in Bidi town is among the world’s largest and already bloating with 260,000 South Sudanese and 2,700 reportedly arriving every day since November.
Uganda authorities have warned of the influx saying it has reached its maximum capacity.
UN estimates another 300,000 South Sudanese refugees are expected to arrive in Uganda alone next year as violence in the world’s youngest nation continues.
Uganda is now home to 600,000 refugees from South Sudan, with more than half arriving after July following the outbreak of fighting in Juba between forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and former vice President Riek Machar.
