Agencies launch revised appeal for South Sudan refugees amid concerns the numbers could pass the 1 million mark this year
Nairobi, 15 July 2016 (UNHCR) - The population of South Sudanese refugees in the region could pass the 1 million mark this year if cross-border displacement trends continue, according to Ann Encontre, Regional Refugee Coordinator for the South Sudan situation.
June 6, 2016 (ADDIS ABABA) - Ethiopian officials on Monday said that most of the Ethiopian Nuer children kidnapped by a South Sudan’s Murle militia group have been rescued and have returned home safely.
On April 15, 2016, thousands of members of a South Sudan’s militia group armed with machine guns, crossed into Ethiopia raided 13 villages in Nuer and Anyuak zones of Ethiopia’s Gambela region where they killed over 200 people and snatched over 100 children.
Ethiopia has been experiencing one of the worst droughts in decades. The main rainy season (kiremt rains) that is vital for producing over 80 per cent of Ethiopia’s agricultural yield – in an industry that employs 85 per cent of the country’s workforce – failed in 2015, and a powerful El Niño weather event continues to wreak havoc on children’s lives and their families’ livelihoods.
