Congolese refu gees in Uganda wait in line to receive households items at Kagoma Reception Centre. Some have waited over a month to receive basic items such as a blanket. Meanwhile, thousands more continue to arrive in Uganda. Around 4,500 Congolese refugees are currently staying here, waiting to receive plots of land for temporary settlement and household items. The conditions in the centre are difficult and extremely overcrowded. Chronic underfunding of the Congolese refugee response has led to many gaps in assistance.
