South Sudanese Refugees in Sudan Amount to More Than 120,000

KHARTOUM – The number of South Sudanese who fled the conflict sought refuge in neighboring Sudan has risen to 121,400 people, according to a UN report released on Monday.

The UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, OCHA, in Sudan noted that the office has recently recorded nearly 50,000 South Sudanese refugees in the Khartoum region alone.

Humanitarian organizations are providing basic assistance such as food and medical supplies for the displaced, mainly in neighboring states of the South Sudan states.

The OCHA added in its report that the funds needed to carry out the humanitarian campaigns are “insufficient.”

South Sudan has been the scene of armed conflict since December 2013, when President Salva Kir Mayardit accused former vice president and current rebel leader, Riek Machar, of an attempted coup d’etat.

Thousands have died and hundreds of thousands have been displaced due to the violence.

The two sides have reached several ceasefire agreements and have pledged to form a unity government, but as of yet, such efforts have remained futile.
