200,000 S. Sudanese refugees expected in Sudan in 2018: UN


February 18, 2018 (KHARTOUM) – About 200,000 South Sudanese refugees are expected in Sudan in 2018, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a report.

The world body, early this month, launched the 2018 South Sudanese Regional Refugee Response Plan (RRRP), which is said, targets an estimated 200,000 refugee arrivals into Sudan this year.

“Continued fighting, limited humanitarian assistance and extreme levels of food insecurity are forcing citizens of South Sudan to seek refuge, safety and access to food and basic services in neighbouring countries,” OCHA said in its bi-weekly bulletin.

The humanitarian agency, said as the South Sudanese refugee response enters its fifth year, there is a need to move beyond just emergency response, and focus on longer-term solutions that will strengthen resilience and allow the refugees to become more self-reliant.

“Camp-based assistance will continue to be provided in established camps, with a move towards more durable infrastructure,” it said.

Greater emphasis, it stressed, will be placed on addressing refugee needs in out-of-camp locations, with a view to expand community-based assistance to support host communities and ensure refugees are able to continue living outside of camps if they choose.

One of the main objectives of the RRRP focus on maintaining an emergency response capacity to ensure immediate protection responses and address the urgent needs of new arrivals in 2018.

According to the UN humanitarian office, the government of Sudan maintains an open border policy for refugees, ensuring unfettered access, immediate protection and safety within Sudan’s borders.

The 2018 response strategy, it stressed, focuses on assistance for new arrivals, while at the same time addressing ongoing needs of the existing refugee caseload, including those in out-of-camp locations.

The South Sudanese conflict, now in its fifth year, has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced over 2 million people since its outbreak in December 2013.

    "200,000 S. Sudanese refugees expected in Sudan in 2018: UN"
    What a trash of a headline? Are the bunch of South Sudanese traitors cowering in foreign countries & are hellbent on selling our country to their evil corporate America, the UK, their UN, their NGOs & some of their creepy allies in between? How can’t the parasites in the UN predict about the running of South Sudanese to other countries?>

      Oh well, I know where is going. The parasites are going to go & beg in the name of their usual hungry South Sudan & the South Sudanese people & then come spend what they had begged on the opulence hotels, bars & brothels in Nairobi, Kampala or Adis Ababa. And give the rest to other hungry African refugees & a few crumbs to South Sudanese & their begging cycle begins in the so-called lean season>>>

        Have a look on that picture, it has nothing to do with the South Sudanese, but a Darfur refugees picture. But well, only South Sudanese are always the hungriest people on earth. Where do many other refugees from countries like ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, North Sudan, CAR, DRC, Northern Nigeria or Burundi gets their damn food from?>>>

                      from the Americas. There were many indigenous people in both current Liberia & sierra Leone then. And up to this date some of my South Sudanese fools, Liberia & Sierra Leone are the poorest countries in West Africa these days, when they are the most richest countries. The US, the UK & the some Western creepy allies gave them their usual IMF & world bank loans & bled those countries dry>>>

                            the then govt of Salva Kiir gave the US companies the first priority since the US people were considered by the South Sudanese people to have stood with us during our trying times. But the US investors flatly refused that there were no infrastructures in our country to come & invest in them. Mr. Salva Kiir & his then ministers came & asked the Chinese investors to come & investors in our country>>

But as always, some of our Nuers reasoning and being realistic has never & will never be part of their damn lives----gat Riek Machar will just come back & distribute the Naath free money & free food. Good luck our Nuer cousins.

        200,000 will go into the refugee from Aweil to Sudan, what about others neighboring countries such as Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda. After two years South Sudan remain empty only those in J1 will be there still looting.
        That what happens when the illegitimate leader is treating the citizen with a cattle camp minded ability. Shame to Mayardiit.
