Number of South Sudanese Refugees Fleeing to Uganda Reaches One Million

World Vision calls for immediate action as the one millionth South Sudanese refugee enters Uganda this week.

“There are more refugees in the world today than at any time since World War II. Today’s refugee crisis is a global catastrophe,” said World Vision U.S. President Rich Stearns. “It’s also a catastrophe for children. Regardless of where you look—the Middle East or East Africa—more than half the refugees you see are children. We can’t sit on the sidelines when there are so many innocent people in desperate need.”
