More than 3000 IDPs in Gemeza in dire need of humanitarian aid

Terekeka state officials say more than 3,000 internally displaced people from neighbouring Jonglei state have arrived to the state fleeing recent communal fighting in their areas.

Lado Philip, Information Minister of Terekeka State told Radio Tamazuj on Friday that since last week 3,200 IDPs now in Gemeza County are in dire need of humanitarian assistance.

He called on the national and Jonglei state governments to intervene and improve security in Jonglei to avoid further displacement of people, saying they have no facilities to host the IDPs.

Phillip further called on aid organizations to quickly intervene to avert a humanitarian crisis in the region.
