Situation overview

Clashes in Jonglei State continued, with aid agencies having only limited access to
civilians affected by violence outside urban areas, due to insecurity and logistical
challenges. Health organizations are responding to needs in the state and have treated
over 330 violence-related casualties since early February. Kenya’s Kakuma camp has
seen growing numbers of refugees from South Sudan, with 4,265 arriving since the
beginning of the year. The majority come from Jonglei State. Humanitarian access in
Jonglei remains a concern, with a relief convoy attacked on the road between Pibor and Bor.

In a positive development, the President of South Sudan has issued directives to local authorities to facilitate the movement of aid across the country.

The new refugee camp in Ajoung Thok, Unity State opened officially on 30 March, and
120 refugees from Sudan’s Blue Nile State arrived in Maban County, Upper Nile State.
