New life begins for evacuated orphans in South Sudan

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.
