South Sudan: IDP Caseload Estimate and Selected Locations in Juba for July 11-18, 2016

July 22, 2016

REACH and Global WASH Cluster teams in Juba, South Sudan, were able to monitor and track displacements from targeted populations within and outside the capital city during the last 10 days’ renewed outbreak of violence. The estimates show that as many as 68,000 IDPs took shelter in different areas. The two preferred locations on July 11th were the Kondokor Island, and Gurei. After a week, the estimated number of IDPs dropped to around 15,000, two thirds of whom were sheltered in UN areas, namely the UN House (6,800 IDPs) and the UNMISS Tomping area (4,000 IDPs). 

You can follow on the slideshow below the evolution of both the decreasing number and the changing selected locations of IDPs in the one week of the outbreak of violence in Juba.
