    WFP Doubles Operations in Uganda as Refugees Continue to Arrive from War-Torn South Sudan (For the Media)

    Uganda now hosts more refugees than any other country in Africa while continuing to keep its borders open to those fleeing conflict or persecution. Uganda’s progressive policy allows refugees to obtain a plot of land, start businesses, access healthcare and education and move freely. It allows people the opportunity to rebuild their lives close to their home country.  Despite WFP’s operation more than doubling in the last year we have only managed to meet the needs of the newest arrivals every month by the skin of our teeth.  We need enough money -- at the right time -- to keep our warehouses stocked with food for the one million refugees who depend on us.
