There is a significant increase in the number of students applying for secondary schools in camps north of Nyala in South Darfur, amid a shortage of schools. New displacement from Jebel Marra seems the main driver.
The camp coordinator of Otash camp told Radio Dabanga on Sunday that Otash has only one secondary school for all children in the camp against at least 15 primary schools. He estimated that more than 90,000 people live in Otash.
The cost of living in South Sudan sustained rising trends during the reporting month. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) increased in June by 310% year-on-year, the highest in the world and historic ever recorded in the country. The recent fighting in Juba disrupted markets and trade, significantly reducing food availability and consequent remarkable increase in food prices in the capital to as high as 45-80% for legumes, 12-58% for cereals and up to 70-80% for fuel within one week following the cessation of hostilities.
Two children died of malnutrition on Thursday and many more are in danger among the displaced people taking refuge in the Lobe area, eight kilometres west of Deribat in East Jebel Marra.
About 2,500 people who fled from government attacks on Sorong, Rofta, and Boly in February, are reportedly suffering from difficult humanitarian conditions, with a lack of food and tents. Many of the children are malnourished.
Activists told Radio Dabanga that Hanan Babiker Eisa (8) and Ibrahim Hamid Jaafar (5) are the latest casualties.

In June, 773 migrants living with foster families or hosted at IOM’s Migrant Response Points in Al Hudaydah and Sana’a received daily food assistance from IOM. Since March 2015, IOM has provided nearly 8,000 migrants in Aden, Al Hudaydah, and Sana’a with daily food assistance.

KHARTOUM – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today welcomed a contribution of €10 million (approximately US$11.1 million) from the Government of Germany to support nearly 350,000 people in the eastern Sudan state of Kassala.
WFP will use the funds to provide food assistance to more than 88,400 refugees, migrants and asylum seekers from Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia as well as members of their host communities, through general food distributions and food vouchers for one year.
Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) leader Joseph Kony has proven capable of outmaneuvering internal rivals and external military threats for nearly three decades, but his once firm control over the group’s command structure is eroding. LRA groups are scattered across a vast territory, and Ugandan fighters are defecting at a slow but steady rate, demoralized by Kony’s harsh disciplinary measures and lack of vision for the future. At least one group of LRA officers led by Achaye Doctor has splintered and is operating independently of Kony’s command.
Camp residents in Shangil Tobaya in North Darfur have urged the Ministry of Education to provide better school services for the children in the camp.
