IOM South Sudan Monthly Update October 2018
The situation in Juba remained calm throughout the month, most pertinently during an event attended by Government, opposition and regional leaders to celebrate the recent peace agreement. However, in other parts of the country, armed clashes throughout the month led to the continued suffering of South Sudanese communities. As the Ebola Disease Virus (EVD) outbreak impacts the lives of people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the humanitarian community in South Sudan continues prevention measures along both countries’ border with the DRC.
