IOM supports safe water, sanitation and hygiene for South Sudanese refugees

 
 
When I ask Jackson Yakani where he comes from, his answer surprises me.
 
“I am also a refugee!” he declares, sounding like he, too, is surprised by his situation. “I am also from South Sudan”
 
Yakani, 32, is the assistant in-charge at Luru health centre III in Moyo district’s Palorinya settlement for South Sudanese refugees. He has been expectantly guiding his “visitors” around the health centre, explaining the many challenges health workers faces catering for up to 200 outpatients a day.
