Juba, 14 May, 2022 / 4:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) fleeing violence in South Sudan’s Western Equatoria State need more assistance, an official of the Compassionate and Humanity Organization (CHO) of the Catholic Diocese of Tombura-Yambio has said.
In an interview with ACI African on Tueday, May 10, Simon Banzenze who heads the administration and finance department at CHO said that IDPs are vulnerable and need humanitarian support to survive.
“We call upon partners to continue supporting us so that we can be able to support people with disabilities, orphans, and IDPs but we are not able to do it,” Mr. Banzenze said, adding that if “we have partners with resources, let them help us.”
The CHO official further said that there is need for “food and non-food items” for the IDPs in Western Equatoria State.
“They also need tools because some of them lobbied around for some land and they got it,” Mr. Banzenze said in reference to IDPs in Western Equatoria State, and added, “They are requesting seeds and some tools where they can establish themselves and also some start up kits.”
