South Sudanese in Sudan are in dire need due to "lack of humanitarian aid”, says International Federation of Red Cross or IFRC Secretary-General
Elhadj As Sy says thousands of people displaced by the conflict in South Sudan are in “desperate” need of humanitarian assistance and care.
He was speaking following a visit to Sudan’s White Nile State which hosts 150 thousand South Sudan refugees.
The Secretary-General explains that thousands of returnees and other displaced people are living in precarious informal settlements.
Lack of support is placing healthcare, water and sanitation services under strain, he notes.
As says International Federation of Red Cross and the Sudanese Red Crescent are very concerned about the high prevalence of diseases such as malaria.
Secretary-General of Sudanese Red Crescent, Osman Jaafar Abdullah, urges the international community to support their response efforts.
He stresses that Red Crescent cannot fail the people who have lost everything and desperately want to recover their dignity and live in peace.
