Uganda - Floods and Landslides - 2012

Fighting between government troops and M23 rebel forces in North Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has forced thousands of families to flee their homes into Uganda.


Many crossed the border through Kisoro and travelled 20 kilometres to Nyakabande transit centre, bringing the number of refugees there to over 16,000. From there, many are being relocated 370 kilometres away to Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement in Kamwenge district, which currently has 13,600 refugees.
