Over 100 internally displaced persons (IDPs) have reportedly fled a UN-run camp in Malakal, Friday, for neighbouring Sudan, due to hunger, poor living conditions and a Cholera outbreak, which is said to be exacerbating the problem.
"Our situation here in the camps is really bad because there are many diseases and we do not have enough medicine and a place to live. We are suffering here" said camp resident Ajok. Those who have left the site are said to be mostly women and children due to men fearing being rounded up by government forces.
South Sudan's civil war began two years after the country declared its independence from Sudan in December 2013. Over 1.5 million people have been reportedly displaced since the war, resulting in Africa's largest refugee crisis.
