South Sudan. High Commissioner visits displaced in Juba

"We want peace."

Internally displaced women and children are photographed in their shelter at POC3 camp in Juba during a visit by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi. ; The refugee crisis in South Sudan has displaced almost 4 million people since the conflict began in December 2013. In July 2016, the disastrous breakdown of peace efforts in South Sudan contributed to a mass outflow of people fleeing for their lives. By June 2017, nearly 1.87 million people had fled the country and a further 1.9 million were internally displaced. Two-thirds are under the age of 18 and many of them have witnessed brutal violence, fleeing their villages when armed groups burned down their houses and killed their neighbours. During a three-day visit to the world’s fastest growing displacement crisis, UNHCR chief Filippo Grandi said peace is the only lasting solution for the millions of displaced.
