Juba, 28 September, 2023 / 8:39 pm (ACI Africa).
Caritas South Sudan, the development and humanitarian arm of the Catholic Bishops in the East-Central African country, has reached out to hundreds of households fleeing the war that broke out in Sudan on April 15.
In an interview with ACI Africa on Wednesday, September 27, Joseph Sabu Pasquale, the Caritas South Sudan Humanitarian Coordination said an emergency appeal had been launched to assist the returnees and refugees.
“The returnees came from Sudan with nothing, a situation that has made their transit to their homes very difficult,” Sabu said, and added, “We developed a rapid response program for them, covering the Dioceses of Wau, Malakal and the Archdiocese of Juba.”
