Situation Report
Originally published



  • UNHCR distributed medicines and medical supplies to all refugee camps in South Sudan, which will suffice for the next six months.

  • There were 772 new arrivals at the Bentiu Protection of Civilians (POC) site, mostly women and children from Rubkkona and Mayom counties (Unity State) who said that they were fleeing inter-communal fighting and lacked food.

  • Operations in the Yei area (Central Equatoria State) are constrained by militia attacks on the main Juba-Yei (murram) road. Because of this, over the past month, staff travelling to Yei from Juba and back had to make a 12-hour journey along the Juba-Nimule-Adjumani-Moyo-Yei road (Adjumani-Moyo are in Uganda), instead of the previous 4-hour journey.
