A Congolese refugee prepares mud to build his new home at the Nyori UNHCR Settlement in Lasu, Central Equatoria. In October 2008, thousands of Congolese fleeing violence perpetrated by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) crossed into Southern Sudan to make their way to safety at three main UNHCR settlements, Nyori in Central Equatoria, and Makpandu and Ezo in Western Equatoria. As the violence continues in DRC, CAR and Sudan, new arrivals register with UNHCR weekly.
