"Madelena Mousa is from the resident area of Raja. “I came here because of the conflict with my six children. The youngest one is three months old. I came walking from Raja and it took six days. This is the one place I knew where the security is good and this is why we came here. Since the crisis started, nothing has happened here, so that’s why we feel safe. We are not planning to go back to Raja because it is still not safe. We will stay here”, she says.
The ICRC distributed emergency food to 1,000 families in the village of Deim Zubeir in northwest South Sudan on August 10 and 11. The assistance will feed 6,000 people. According to local authorities, Deim Zubeir is home to 36,000 people, but the community is now hosting 18,000 displaced persons, a state that is stretching food and water resources.”
