Primary school students at the Makpandu UNHCR Congolese Refugee Settlement in Western 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.
