New returnees facing food, water, medicine shortages in South Sudan

New arrivals of South Sudanese returnees from Sudan to refugee camps in Northern Bahr Al Ghazal are facing shortages of food, medicine and water.

Returnee James Dodd told Radio Tamazuj that are 3,000 new families living north of Aweil, in difficult humanitarian conditions.

Since arrival to South Sudan in July last year, families have been facing food, medicine and water shortages.

Dodd said they share already scarce resources with people living in the region, and do not currently have access to a health centre.
