The recent history of the East African Republic of Uganda is marked by conflicts such as the civil war against the Lord's Resistance Army, infamous because of its leader, Joseph Kony. During the war, hundreds of thousands of people lost their lives. Extreme drought and crop failures are adding to the strain as well. In spite of everything, Uganda is still accepting refugees from neighbouring countries and has exemplary asylum policies. More than one million people have already found refuge in Uganda, with about three-quarters of this number coming from its northern neighbour of South Sudan.
