On arrival, refugees receive assistance support usually led by UN agency, UNCHR. Apart from food aid, non-food items are usually supplied once. Four years on, since South Sudanese refugees arrived in the North of Uganda, most of their basic non-food materials they received are worn out. They feel neglected.

Juruga Samuel visited refugees living in Uganda’s largest refugee settlement. He sent us this report.
