South Sudan: Thousands of people displaced

14 January 2014

Fighting broke out in mid-December between government forces and supporters of the former vice-president. Over 70,000 people have fled the violence in Bor, capital of Jonglei state. Here, we are 50 km from the town Bor, where the army is trying to regain control. Bor has been in rebel hands since the end of December. The civilian population has fled. Most of the displaced are women and children. Forced to leave at a moment’s notice, they have few personal belongings. Here in Awerial camp, shelters and hygiene facilities are all too few.
