March 29, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - A delegation from the National Assembly has visited the South Sudanese refugee camps in Al-Salam locality, White Nile State.

The delegation included MPs from the parliamentary sub-committees on defence and health and was headed by Al-Hadi Adam Hamid.

Hamid told reporters the visit comes within the framework of the parliament monitoring of the humanitarian and voluntary groups and to inspect the general conditions at the refugee camps.

He pointed to environmental degradation due to the expansion of the refugee camp.

For her part, the head of the parliamentary sub-committee on health, Imtithal al-Rayah, stressed the importance to provide the needs of refugees and the host communities.

She pointed to the need to implement the services projects in areas of health, education and drinking water, calling on the international aid groups to meet its commitments towards the refugees.

Earlier this month, the former governor of the White Nile State Abu Al-Gasim al-Amin Baraka said the state is hosting 160,000 South Sudanese refugees in the camps besides 60,000 in the various towns.

Over 2 million South Sudanese refugees have been displaced as a result of the conflict that hit the world’s youngest nation in mid-December 2013.

According to the UN Higher Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), as of 15 January 2018, the total South Sudanese refugee population in Sudan stood at 770,110.

Other sources estimate a total of 1.3 million South Sudanese refugees in Sudan, but this data requires verification.

South Sudanese refugees in Sudan have reportedly been distributed in four states including the White Nile, South Kordofan, East Darfur and Khartoum states, amid concerns the current numbers will rise.

In August 2016, Sudan officially declared that South Sudanese fleeing war in their country will be treated as refugees, which opens the door for the UN to provide them with aid and fund aid programs.

      Equatorial1,
      This is what you get when there are people who just want to be freeloaders of UN and NGOs all their lives. By way was it not your Thomas Cirillo who even encouraged South Sudanese to run away from South Sudan to neighboring countries because he believed Mr. Salva Kiir was killing them. Besides, Equatorians were honestly asked not to join Mr. Riek Machar aimless armed rebellion>>>

        because joining Mr. Riek Machar armed rebellion was going to take violent to their towns and villages. But some Equatorians failed to heed that honest warning and joined Mr. Riek Machar aimless armed rebellion anyway and there they are in Northern Uganda blaming others about war in South Sudan. But they were parts of problems in the first place>>>

          If l may ask you Equatoria1, did Mr. Thomas Cirillo envisioned of who would go to house and feed those South Sudanese he falsely encouraged to run to neighboring countries? Absolutely not. Mr. Pagan Amuom, another traitor and foreign puppet even went and declared outside the UN building in New York that the UN should take over South Sudan!!. Most of those refugees in white Nile are Shilluks>>>

            A lot of internally displaced South Sudanese in Juba, here in Bor, Akoba, Malakal, Bentiu, Mayendit, Way or Aburoc don’t want to move out of these filthy so-called UN compounds. They are comfortable there it seems. But life under UN handouts isn’t going to be sustainable. Some people are not envisioning this but this is a plain truth. Many of those South Sudanese now in neighboring countries>>>

              would be shipped back and dumped in big towns like in after the 2005 CPA and after independence repatriation in 2012. And these South Sudanese returnees would come and think, the government of South Sudan would be giving free food rations like what they used to get from the UN and NGOs in neighboring countries. These are facts, no one is telling our South Sudanese losers that nothing is free>>>

                of charge on this planet earth. Kenyans, Ugandans, Abeshas (so-called ethiopians), Congolese or North Sudanese citizens are not distributed with free money or free food rations by their governments. They just worked their ’arses off’ to feed themselves. But in South Sudan, the land of God’s people, everyone want free things. Good luck with that fellows.>>>

                  Even God warns, ’let those who don’t work not eat’. The reasons as to US, the UK, their UN and their NGOs are so fixated on South Sudanese people small issues when there massive problems in other countries than our own? South Sudan is considered by our enemies as their NEW DR Congo or Somalia in Africa to be fought for & to be Geopolitically chess game or football played over like their DR Congo>
