One factor causing significant risk to the children of Uganda is the high proportion of children who are growing up as refugees. There are now over 1.5 million refugees living in Uganda. This number has tripled since 2016 and is expected to continue to rise exponentially as tribal conflict in multiple countries continues to drive people to seek safety within Uganda. Of this number, approximately 80,000 refugees live in the capital city of Kampala. Refugees in Kampala come predominantly from Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Eritrea.
