UNMISS Malakal drains stagnant pools to curb cholera

4 July 2014 - In an urgent effort to prevent cholera from spreading within the UNMISS Malakal Protection of Civilians (PoC) site and surrounding areas, the mission today began draining stagnant water in the camp.

Ongoing, heavy rain in the Upper Nile State capital for the past few months has led to the buildup of water, which will take seven days to clear.

The operation also includes relocating small businesses run by Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to a safer location immediately outside the base to pave the way for the draining and cleaning exercise.
