*Sept 20, 2016(Nyamilepedia)* —— An estimate preliminary number of over
70,000 people is affected and displaced by the currently devastating floods
in Fangak County.

This came as a result of on and off or the recurrent heavy rainfalls which
started since mid April 2016 in the County. Those heavy frequent
rainfalls/rains accumulated water, later mixed with rivers water (Nile &
Zeraf Rivers) is now causing flood in the residential areas.

Literally, at the time of releasing this press statement, thousands of
floods affected and displaced people are in a dire need—very urgent need of
Humanitarian Assistance/Intervention.

The most and badly affected Payams (locations) in Fangak County include
Mareang, Toch, Old Fangak, Pulpam, Pagiur, Pulita and Barboi with massive
displacements and an estimated descend number of about 19,000, 18,000,
15,000, 13,000, 8,000, and 5,000 respectively. This means almost the whole
county is affected.

The numbers of people affected are displaced to both higher grounds nearby
the flooded villages as well as to other far distant locations but within
the county. So, currently the situation of the floods affected and
displaced people in Fangak County of Phow State, formerly Jonglei State, is
terrible and in need of quick intervention from the humanitarian agencies
in the country.

Any help, even an assessment, would be highly appreciated.

Therefore, we call upon all Humanitarian Agencies including UN Agencies,
International Organizations, theirs Partners and National Organizations to
swiftly intervene as soon as possible, in order to arrest this humanitarian

The displaced people’s priority needs are NFIs (mosquito nets, plastic
sheets for sheltering, buckets, saucepans/cooking items, fishing
twins/gears…etc), Food aids and health facilities and medicines.

This is an urgent call for all UN agencies, International and National
