South Sudanese refugees struggle to adjust to life in Uganda

Escalating violence in South Sudan has given rise to massive population displacement both within South Sudan and into neighboring countries. Since the beginning of December 2013, the influx of refugees into Uganda has continued to increase, leaving tens of thousands of people in dire need of emergency medical care, shelter, food, water and adequate sanitation facilities. The arrival of the rain season is the cause of great concern among organisations currently working in Adjumani district as flooding could lead to the spread of waterborne diseases such as cholera. Photojournalists Kajsa Sjölander and Will Rose captured these images while working for Plan International and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in Adjumani district, Uganda.
