Koch County of Unity state has mobilized more than 22 million South Sudan Pounds to resettle returnees who fled ongoing conflict in neighboring Sudan.

Ruot Riak Teny, the chairperson of the Relief and Rehabilitation Commission told No.1 Citizen Daily Newspaper on Wednesday.

He said that the money will support returnees who came from Sudan via Nyaruop Port.

“They have no food and the money that we mobilized will enable them to buy food as they wait for humanitarian response,” Teny said in an interview at Koch County headquarters.

He said that the money was mobilized from eight Payams, trade unions, women unions, and youth unions within Koch County.

“It’s the first-ever fundraising we have conducted in Koch town, and we are now handing over the money to returnees so that they will buy food for their children,” Teny said.

He also thanked the Koch County Commissioner, Gorden Koang Biel Char for supporting the mobilization of the money for returnees.
