South Sudan: Border Conflicts Leave Thousands Displaced from Mercy Corps on Vimeo.

As South Sudan's independence celebration approaches, a humanitarian crisis is also unfolding in the region. More than 100,000 people have fled fighting in Abyei, a disputed region along the border of northern and southern Sudan.

Mercy Corps is helping by providing shelter materials to families, assistance to the local health clinic and logistical support to other humanitarian responders.
