Refugees

■ As of 15 March 2,060 South Sudanese refugees had been relocated to Biringi settlement since February. Most of them had arrived during an influx in the first half of February, while some had also stayed along the border for years and complied with the authorities’ request to move further inland.

■ Due to strong wind, on 9-10 March, 222 refugee shelters were destroyed at Mole camp, Sud Ubangi Province, home to almost 15,000 Central African refugees. There is a need to rehabilitate these structures to avoid promiscuity in the camp.
