Only a "small fraction" of South Sudanese who have been displaced by three years of civil conflict are sheltering in sites built by the UN, the organization's peacekeeping operation in South Sudan UNMISS has said.

The seven Protection of Civilian or PoC sites are now hosting more than 204,000 civilians.

The UN estimates that almost 1.9 million have been displaced across the East African country.

Gabriel Shadar has been speaking to Sam Muhumure, UNMISS Senior Coordination Officer for Relief, Reintegration and Protection.
