Parts of Morobo County received an influx of both IDPs who were previously abroad (South Sudan nationals), and returnees from neighbouring Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. DTM mapped a total of 1,474 IDPs in Esebi, Kendila and 2,355 returnees, Dudulabe, and Wudabi. Arrivals to these locations occurred at different time intervals starting from 14 February to 15 March 2020. Most IDPs found refuge at a displacement site in Esebi, while returnees settled in areas of former habitual residence. It should be noted that return movements were primarily motivated by bad living conditions abroad. According to a DTM focal person on the ground, there has been no humanitarian response to urgent needs such as food, shelter, NFIs, health, water, and sanitation.
