IDPs seek urgent Humanitarian assistance in South Sudan

Up to six thousand internally displaced people
are appealing for urgent humanitarian
assistance in Kuda,
45 kilometers west of Juba
after a recent fighting between the Sudan
People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) and a group
of armed men.
An assessment team from the United Nations
Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) visited the
area over the weekend to assess the
humanitarian situation.
Market and shops in the area were ruined and
looted.
The once busy primary health care
center – also lies in ruins and has been
abandoned with no medical services available.
Displaced residents say they are living in the
bush these days because they are afraid
adding that they have no safe water, no food
and children cannot go to school.
