Bidi Bidi hosts people fleeing South Sudan’s latest spasm of violence. Clashes in Juba 8 July sparked a collapse in the troubled state’s fragile peace. Government forces chased opposition fighters through the country. They spread war as they went. People fled in the wake of the mayhem.

YUMBE, UGANDA — Once a safe haven for those trying to escape South Sudan’s conflict, Yei is the latest town to be engulfed by violence in the country’s civil war.
In Yei, the population often falls asleep to gunfire and wakes up to soldiers patrolling the streets. The army, made up primarily of soldiers belonging to the Dinka ethnic group of President Salva Kiir, controls all roads leading out of town.

More than 44,000 South Sudanese refugees arrived in Uganda in the first two weeks of November, bringing the total to 340,000 since July, and there is no indication that the huge influx will slow down soon. At a cost of US$12 million per month for its refugee operation, WFP is overstretched and in urgent need of resources.
