Some of the IDPs displaced by the recent heavy clashes in Unity State, shelter on an island in the river Nile. The United Nations and NGOs have no choice but to provide assistance by air.

The UN estimates that recent fighting in the greater Upper Nile region has displaced some 150,000 people and affected 750,000 in total.

The UN’s International Organisation for Migration (IOM), the UN children’s agency UNICEF and other aid agencies worked together to develop a nine kilogram survival kit.
