Yida refugee camp flooded with North Sudanese

Getty Images reports: Yida refugee camp in South Sudan grows each day and now has swollen to 64,317, as the refugees continue to flee from South Kordofan in North Sudan. The numbers of refugees arriving from North Sudan vary from 500 to 1,000 a day.

Many new arrivals walked from 3 to 5 days to reach the camp without food. The rainy season has increased the numbers suffering from diarrhea and severe malnutrition and 95% of the field hospitals’ patients are children under the age of five. link
