More than 500 displaced women in Yambio, Western Equatoria State, are appealing for humanitarian assistance.

They fled the recent conflict between local youths and cattle keepers from other states.

“We have given to only few [women]; and still you can see even, many women are here waiting to get the assistance.”

Several women who did not receive the items were not happy.

“We are heartbroken because those people who got the items are not from Maridi,” said Ludia Najua Taku.

The IDPs say they want more non-food items to improve their hygiene and sanitation amid Cholera outbreak in Juba and Bor.
