Congolese refugees wait for WFP food rations to be distributed at the Ezo UNHCR Settlement in Western Equatoria. Sudanese SPLA soldiers surround the camp during the distributions for security. 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. Ezo in particular, remains a security risk for refugees, internally displaced Sudanese, and the aid workers serving them.
