A team of UN peacekeepers and local authorities arrived in the South Sudanese community of Nadiangere to assess the security situation and hear first-hand what challenges the community is facing. Residents say that they are lacking basic services such as education, health, and security facilities. This scarcity has been compounded by the arrival of internally displaced persons who have fled the recent outburst of intercommunal violence in Tambura. UNMISS

Storyline

In the early morning, an UNMISS helicopter approaches Nadiangere, a community located in South Sudan’s Western Equatoria State.

The lush and fertile landscape is bursting with newly planted crops. They are vital for supplying food and income, not only to this village, but to communities across the region.

On board the flight is a team of peacekeepers and representatives of the local authorities.

They are here to assess the security situation and hear first-hand what challenges the community is facing. Residents say that they are lacking basic services such as education, health, and security facilities. This scarcity has been compounded by the arrival of internally displaced persons who have fled the recent outburst of intercommunal violence in Tambura.

Women and children are suffering the most, with essential goods and services being insufficient.
SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Eunice Philimona, internally displaced woman in Nadiangere:
“We ran into the bush then started moving, after a while we reached Nadiangere. No food for us at all, I am now very tired. There is no way to be taken to the hospital, no access to communication or ways to talk with my sibling, who remained behind.”

For 21-year-old, Severina Angelo, a mother of two, restoring peace is paramount.

SOUNDBITE (English) Severina Angelo, Nadiangere resident:
“We are very tired, we need peace, we have suffered a lot. We need schools, we need hospitals and other materials which are missing from us.”

In response to the needs of the community, UNMISS has financed the construction of a primary school in the area. It has three classrooms, a teachers' office, and provides a much-improved learning environment for more than 300 girls and boys.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Alfred Futuyo Karaba, Governor Western Equatoria State:
“We congratulate the UN for having built three classrooms for Nadiangere. We will continue to move forward to encourage people to go to school to get an education and to carry out agricultural activities. The government will stand together with them and work hand in hand for the development of the country.”

The UNMISS school project is expected to boost the quality of life for residents and internally persons alike, particularly for girls and women, and contributes to the protection of civilians, a core part of the peacekeeping mission’s mandate in the world’s youngest nation.

SOUNDBITE (English) Jane Lanyero Kony, Head of the UNMISS Field office in Yambio:
“Do know that we are here to listen to what are the challenges and to go back, and to the extent possible mobilize among the UN community. As UNMISS, we continue to do what is our mandate, which is, the protection of civilians. We continue to work with the government, to complement their efforts to protect each civilian in South Sudan.”

UNMISS peacekeepers continue to conduct patrols in the area and work closely with humanitarian partners to assist people in need across Western Equatoria and beyond.
