Juba, South Sudan. 24 July 2018 – CARE has joined United Nations and civil society organisations in South Sudan to denounce recent attacks on aid workers and destruction of property in Maban County.

“CARE reiterates that aid workers should never be a target of violence,” says Rosalind Crowther, CARE Country Director in South Sudan. “Aid workers should be protected to allow them to work freely to assist millions suffering as a result of the ongoing conflict.”

She adds, “CARE is calling on the authorities to offer assurance that aid workers will be given unimpeded access to the worst affected areas. Without such protection, millions of people will be denied much needed lifesaving assistance,” says Crowther.
