Arab Today, arab today Charity warns of worsening refugee crisis in South Sudan

Khartoum – Agencies

International charity organisation, Save the Children, warned Sunday that the refugee situation in South Sudan is worsening steadily on a daily basis, as the already over-crowded camps in the region are ill-equipped to deal with the continued flow of refugees. The charity said up to 2,000 children are arriving daily at the already over-crowded and flooded camps set up in South Sudan\'s Unity and Upper Nile states. It added that some families have even been forced to abandon elderly and weak relatives along the way. It said seasonal rains have turned the region into wet and muddy marshlands, making the living conditions and the aid efforts far more difficult. Further, aid agencies working in the camps are currently struggling to provide clean water, food and shelter to thousands of new arrivals due to the scale of the influx, funding shortages and adverse weather conditions, the charity added. \"Thousands of families are arriving in South Sudan hungry and terrified after walking for days to reach safety. People are coming just as heavy rains make it virtually impossible to access these areas to provide aid,\" Jon Cunliffe, Save the Children\'s South Sudan country director, said in a statement. \"The resources are not in place to meet the needs of everyone. The worst-case scenario is now a reality; we are witnessing a full-blown humanitarian crisis in one of the most remote places on earth,\" he added. Save the Children has launched an emergency response in refugee camps set up in South Sudan, protecting vulnerable children and providing education to refugees. The aid agency is currently in the process of scaling up its programs in response to the recent influx of refugees. South Sudan had declared independence from Sudan in July 2010 after it voted overwhelmingly in favor of separation from the North in a referendum. The January 2010 referendum was line with a 2005 peace agreement that ended 22 years of civil war between the Arab North and the Christian and animist South. Talks between the two nations for resolving outstanding issues triggered by South Sudan gaining independence from Sudan two years ago were stalled in April after fierce border clashes broke out between the two neighboring nations. An estimated 150,000 people have been displaced by the conflict.
