June 2, 2016 (WAU) – The International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) in South Sudan has reached 70,000 displaced persons in Wau with relief aid, its head of delegation, Jurg Eglin said.

Eglin, who visited Wau in the aftermath of the recent violence, said ICRC had to respond to the humanitarian needs of people in Wau.

“No what happened last week, there was a violence, there was an attacks, there was looting and killing, people had fled their homes and more than 10,000 people had fled their homes from the town to the western part, people are really in desperate under the trees looking for support,” Eglin told Sudan Tribune on Saturday.

The displaced, he added, were provided with food, shelter, medicines and water, in addition to uniting lost children with their families.

Currently, ICRC is reportedly accommodating 5,000 displaced people at its compound in Wau town, its delegation head said.

“The conditions at the compound are quite difficult as sanitation facilities are not enough, including lack of space,” Eglin said, but stressed that ICRC was doing its best to address the situation.
