Refugees in Uganda from Sudan are living a rough life, even after they tried to escape that when they fled to Uganda. People live in fear that they are going to get killed (stabbed, shot,etc) and even raped. Some people also lack food, water and even shelter. Another thing is, is with all of the wealthy countries not doing anything, when they could even be donating money; refugees are living in terrible conditions. Even though Uganda went through over populating their refugee camps, they figured out a way to fix their problem. Almost everyone got a piece of land for shelter and crops, privacy and there were more resources such as education and health care. Lastly, that all wasn’t working children of the age 18 and under are starting to die because health care isn’t helping them.
Most Sudanese refugees have fled to Uganda, their neighboring country. Uganda is now the country with the most refugees. When refugees arrive, they are given a 30-meter square of land. Meaning most families get some privacy and alone time together. While refugees are staying in Uganda they get land for shelter and crops, right to work. Also they get freedom of movement, and access to education and health care. Lastly, With all the education they provide they are finally seeing good futures for the refugees.
People at refugee camps are getting super sick from spreading diseases. Some people are even dying because they get to sick. Data from MSF says that “there were four deaths per 10,000 people per day of children under five-years-of-age.” Most children die from severe infections and/or diarrhea. In order to treat the increasing numbers of ill refugees they had to double the amount of hospital beds. They also are getting more staff to help with health needs. Lastly, refugees aren’t having enough nutrition because they don’t have a lot to eat and if they do eat, it’s not what their bodies need.
Darfur is one of the many places that holds a refugee camp. At the Darfur refugee camp there is very little water to help all of the people survive. It got to the point where people were only surviving on less than 5 liters of water and the new arrival people got even less than that. Also there are infectious diseases like Hepatitis E that are spreading around. Another thing is that the refugees would have to make shelters on patches of desert. Also most things were not clean (bad hygiene). Lastly, if people went out to help support for the refugees, they would be sent back because “their travel permits continue to be blocked.”

Everyday about 2,500 more people become refugees in South Sudan. These refugees have escaped rape, abusement, no food or water. Also people are being killed but not in a normal way “ ‘ They are not shooting you, they are cutting you with a knife,’” and people are even being burnt alive. Some families in Yei, South Sudan are having to watch their own family members get beaten to death, even if it’s in their house. Lastly, some kids can even be left as orphans because the rest of their family dies.
