Refugee children from South Sudan. UNMISS.

One hundred and thirty orphans in South Sudan who were evacuated from their native Malakal, are settling down in a new home in the capital of the country, Juba.

Malakal has been a flash-point in the ongoing conflict in South Sudan which has pitted government forces against rebels.

The orphans are being looked after by the non-governmental organization SOS Children's Villages.

Regina Kwaje asked orphanage director, Banja Charles, how the children are adapting.
