As a result of the recent conflict in South Sudan, over four million people have been displaced. Uganda, with its open-door policy, is unique among countries dealing with the influx of refugees fleeing the violence and instability. The Ugandan government ensures South Sudanese have access to healthcare and education as well as the right to work and move freely. This policy, coupled with the flood of refugees, has placed considerable strain on schools, with skyrocketing student to teacher ratios, and created problems with unequal provision of resources and access to healthcare. To accommodate the swelling number of refugees, the government has reduced size of the land plot given to each family from 50 to 30 square meters. Bidi Bidi, the second largest refugee settlement in the world, is now home to 270,000 refugees. Despite the tenuous cease fire, it will likely remain home for a majority of its residents.
