"“I was pregnant when I had to flee with my children from Raja. We had to take a break every 2-3 hours and it took us 10 days to reach here. It was not easy for them, but we had no other option than to leave”, Belina Sabino explains. Her boy Lurni (2 months) was born 10 days after they arrived to Deim Zubeir.
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.”
