At this time, I would assume you have been following the ongoing news about South Sudan's 11 days old uprising. Gunshots continue to be heard in some areas of Juba, and now fighting has intensified, and moved to other States.
The fighting is between the Government and rebel forces. It remains unclear as to how many people have lost their lives during this man-made senseless uprising. Unconfirmed reports state up to 500 people have died in Juba alone and thousands are continuing to seek refuge at UN premises in both Bor and Juba.
Many civilians are now heading to the countryside crossing through the bush of Omilling by footing from Juba. These civilians are fleeing for a fear that a full scale civil war might break out any time. We are facing pressure, and it is a dire situation for the village clinic at this time. I'm not sure how we can ease a pressure of this influx if we don't get help, said Edward, healthcare volunteer. A week ago, it was bad in Juba, now the situation has calm down. We treat 50 fleeing patients a day at Omilling village clinic before they journey to their villages.
We are asking you to support the fleeing people with essential medicines, specially the children.
