Home > Galleries > 2018 — Caught Between Conflicts

Maban is one of the most marginalised and remote areas in South Sudan and home to over 145,000 people living across four sprawling refugee camps. The majority of people came to Maban having fled armed conflict in the Blue Nile and South Kordofan states of Sudan. They sought refuge in the newly independent South Sudan, but instead found themselves caught in the midst of a brutal civil war, now in its fifth year.

The Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS), with support from Misean Cara and the Irish Jesuit Missions, provide education and psychosocial support services to both refugees and the host community.
