Influx of New Refugees, Ebola Outbreak Managed
DRC Conflicts Increase Number of Refugees Since May
10,989 new refugees arrived in Uganda in June, 79% of whom came from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), followed by South Sudan at 18% and Burundi at 4%. There was an average of 288 new arrivals per day, nearly twice as much as the month of May, the majority of whom were children. This growth trend can be attributed to factors including conflicts between the Hema and Lendu groups in the DRC and resulting human rights violations.
