Living in camps in South Sudan

May 25, 2012, 03:44 PM, Wat, Jonglei, 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 #conflict #dec #emergency #Jonglei #Sudan #violence #Warrap
