South Sudanese refugees, living in various refugee settlements in Northern Uganda, complain cash handouts they receive have not alleviated the problem of food insufficiencies. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and their partners give refugees 31,000 UGX (about 8 US Dollars) cash instead of food rations of grain and beans. The Chairperson of South Sudanese Refugees Association, Aringu Peter, expresses his disappointments. Our reporter, Bakole Savior, exclusively engaged the Chairperson in a talk and sent this report.
