The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki- Moon has made a passionate plea to the international community to support efforts towards the South Sudanese Refugee crisis.
He made the call on Thursday while world leaders and humanitarians got together at the UN to discuss what next for South Sudan.
The UN Chief says help needs to be extended to the host countries, noting that they have so far only received less that 2% of the $7.2 million for humanitarian response in Africa’s youngest nation. He describes it as a nation “Struggling for survival”-
Uganda is one the host countries with the biggest number of South Sudan Refugees.
Almost three years of internal conflict, born out of a political row between two leaders serving in the same government, has led to the deaths of tens of thousands of people and forced some 2.6 million to flee their homes.
