South Sudanese Refugees Returning from Ethiopia Face Dire Conditions and Human Rights Violations
South Sudanese refugees who have returned from Ethiopia are currently facing dire conditions and experiencing violations of their fundamental human rights, including the right to life, education, and other related rights.
The crisis that unfolded in the Gambella Region of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia has had severe consequences for these refugees, significantly impacting their well-being and ability to reintegrate into society.
Several months ago, the Gambella Region in Ethiopia witnessed a significant crisis that affected both host communities and refugees. The impact of this crisis has been particularly harsh on South Sudanese refugees who were forced to flee their homes.
The host communities in Ethiopia have been reported to be responsible for violating the fundamental human rights of South Sudanese refugees. These violations include the right to life, education, and other recognized rights as per international standards.
The violations suffered by South Sudanese refugees have had severe consequences on their well-being and ability to reintegrate into their home country. Basic services such as education and access to healthcare have been compromised, further escalating their plight.
In this correspondence, a pressing appeal is being made to H.E. Denay J. Chagor, the Governor of Jonglei State, and H.E. James Odhok Oyay, the Governor of Upper Nile State, urging them to take immediate action to address these issues.
It is crucial for the government to intervene and provide support to these returning refugees, safeguarding their rights and ensuring their successful reintegration.
The dire situation faced by South Sudanese refugees returning from Ethiopia demands urgent attention and action from relevant authorities and government officials.
By addressing the violations of their fundamental human rights and providing necessary support, we can work towards improving the well-being and successful reintegration of these returning refugees.
