Yesterday I asked if you could guess where I am. Its South Sudan – somewhere near the Sudan border and in the midst of where the IDPs (internally displaced people) have come to seek safety from the on-going conflict.
I was hosted by ACF and there to support emergency WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) coordination in the camps. We visited a few during my stay. Here are a few photos so that you can see the conditions that they are living in.
The facilities are quite basic as they were put up in a rush. Its hard to tell how long people will stay here and there are signs that the displaces are already on the move again. This camp is in a government area. The agencies cant even gain access into the rebel held areas so facilities will be much, much worse. The heat is enervating and there is hardly any shade to escape it.
