Over 190,000 South Sudan Refugees Hit By Water Shortage
Yumbe — At least 190,000 South Sudanese refugees in Bidibidi Camp, in Yumbe District are facing an acute water shortage, a situation that has worsened the dire living conditions in the settlement.
The refugees fled from various tribal clashes and security volatility especially in the Eastern Equatorial towns of Yei and Nimule.
Mr Taban Saverino, a refugee says the water being supplied by agencies like OXFAM is not enough because of the big number of refugees. “The congestion at the water points is too much and people spend hours at the points trying to get water. He said the problem could only be reduced by drilling more boreholes in the settlement.
