South Sudan’s Independence Day Overshadowed By Effects Of War, Hunger
The Guardian: South Sudan: little to celebrate as war and hunger mar independence day
“…As [South Sudan] prepares to mark the third anniversary of its independence from Sudan on Wednesday, the U.N. secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon’s, prophecy that half of South Sudan’s 12 million people could be either ‘displaced internally, refugees abroad, starving, or dead by the year’s end’ looks depressingly accurate. … The U.N. says it needs at least another $1bn (£600m) to cope with the situation, and the Disasters Emergency Committee — which comprises the likes of Oxfam, Save the Children, the British Red Cross, and Cafod — says it has less than half the money it needs to deal with the situation…” (Jones, 7/8).
