Assistance to refugees in Yusuf Batil Camp through the provision of life-saving nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene services

Projekt abgeschlossen

Yusuf Batil Camp is the second largest refugee camp in the Maban area of South Sudan, with a population of 41,082 (UNHCR, October 2016). Due to low government capacity to provide services, refugees depend on United Nations (UN) and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) partners to provide all essential services such as water, sanitation, emergency nutrition and health care.
