Living in camps in South Sudan

In July 2011, South Sudan separated from Sudan to become the world’s newest state. This was the culmination of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement which ended decades of civil war. But the months since separation have not been peaceful and more than 120,000 people have been displaced by violence. Many of those displaced are living in desperate conditions in camps. Christian Aid's Communications Officer Antoinette Powell caught up with Regional Emergency Manager Maurice Onyango and Support Officer Rosie Crowther who recently visited camps in Jonglei and Warrap states. #appeal #ChristianAid #conflict #dec #emergency #Jonglei #SouthSudan #Sudan #violence #Warrap #DisastersEmergencyCommittee

Thanks for your comment Delores. While we're not always in a position to give practical help,the people I've met really value knowing people are thinking of them. Please do tell others about the situation in South Sudan - the more people who know about it, the better.
