Uganda Tops Hospitality for Migrants League in Africa

Today, some 941,000 refugees fleeing from violence and poverty in their home countries come to Uganda, making it the largest refugee-hosting country in the region. They mostly come from South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Somalia where there has been protracted violence, according to the migration officer.
