IHH East Africa Department coordinator Ismail Songür, who is heading the team, said “If donors keep up their support we are planning to deliver aid to bigger number of people here.”

“We have carried out our aid in Mahad and Don Bosco camps located in Juba, capital of Sourthern Sudan. We have delivered emergency aid to 4.000 people living in the camps. Moreover we are planning to deliver aid to internally displaced people from Bentui region. Because the central government has totally collapsed here the need is greater.
