U.N. News Centre: U.N. humanitarian agencies reach thousands of South Sudanese cut off for months
“Emergency relief teams from the United Nations have managed to reach more than 27,000 people in a town in South Sudan cut off by insecurity since March where ‘there were only some fish and a few tomatoes for sale in the market, and almost nobody had the means to buy them.’ … Since fighting broke out in South Sudan in December 2013, more than two million people have been uprooted from their homes, and 4.6 million people face severe food insecurity…” (8/27).
