By James Innocent


Displaced people from Wunduruba Payam of Central Equatoria State, now living at Moje in Lainya County, received food aid from the state government.

The support, initiated by Central Equatoria state governor, Emmanuel Adil Anthony, aims at helping the people, displacement by a recent attack on their area.

Hundreds of families remain displaced from Wonduruba Payam, with many still reported hiding in the bush.

Some, like those who reached Lainya County, traveled long distances for safety.

A visiting state and local government delegation to the displaced in Lainya County, discovered many children and women facing critical food and basic needs shortages.

The situation highlights an urgent need for humanitarian assistance.

One woman described their harrowing escape, running over 20 kilometers with their children after hearing gunshots.

“We ran for more than 20 kilometers to protect our children after hearing heavy gunfire in our community,” she stated

“We don’t know why this happened, and we have nothing – no clothes, mattresses, bed sheets, cooking utensils, even soap or salt,” she added

Another displaced person added, “We are the few who made it to Lainya Town. Most are still hiding in fear, unable to move to safer areas.”
