Children on the brink of starvation
More than 370,000 people in Uganda are a step closer to famine. These are mainly in the Karamoja region and the refugee communities which are under IPC 4 and 3 respectively, with a total of more than 195,000 children suffering from acute malnutrition. FEWS NET warns that between June and September, with the expected continued ration cuts, despite it being a harvesting season, at least 20% of refugees will continue to experience food consumption gaps, with the situation expected to get worse in August and September.
