Geneva 15 April 2015
South Sudan is facing violence since almost 16 months, steaming from a power struggle between the incumbent President Salva Kiir and his former deputy Dr. Riek Machar, which erupted on 15th December 2013 in Juba when Mr. Kiir accused Mr. Machar of staging a coup. Violence has since prevailed and is often breaking out along ethnical lines between Dinka and Nuer tribes.
The war in Syria is already tiring the aid donors around the world, but it exhausts the individuals that are placed inside the refugee camps.
Intended to be temporary, the camps in the northern part of Jordan may become the permanent residence of refugees there. Zaatari camp, set up in 2012, already has its own government, security forces, hospitals, shops, and the “Champs-Élysées,” bumpy alley lined with vendors shacks. Inside their own fenced compounds various aid organisations offer training and different activities for the refugees.
