International Organization for Migration is currently distributing essential relief supplies, including blankets, sleeping mats.
And mosquito nets, cooking set, and soap among others to approximately three thousand and eight hundred families in South Sudan’s Lainya County.
IOM says in a statement sent to CRN that the distribution will continue through mid-October 2017.
The distribution in Lainya comes after IOM and partners verified reports of increased returns to the area.
The displaced people have gradually started to return to the county because the security situation has improved, they add.
Its rapid assessment identified immense needs among those returning.
IOM laments that the South Sudanese refugees walked for five days with very few belongings from Uganda to reach Lainya.
It reports that the displaced families said their homes were looted during the clashes.
Many of the displaced people also complained that they missed the first distribution in July due to security concerns.
Thousands had fled from Lainya and neighbouring areas in 2016.
