Refugees fleeing from the violence in North Sudan are crowding into the Yida refugee camp in South Sudan. Currently swollen beyond 64,000 people, each day the camp sees 500-1,000 new arrivals. Due to the rainy season, many are suffering from severe cases of diarrhea, malaria and malnutrition. Meanwhile, sanitation issues have caused increasing illness, and field hospitals report 95 percent of all patients are under the age five. So far, no food shortages have been reported, but the international aid community continues to struggle to provide basic medical assistance and proper sanitation.
