A survey by the district leaders in indicates that less than 30% of South Sudanese refugees residing in Agojo and Alere refugees’ settlements have no pit latrines. Recently, due to the heavy downpour, a total of 29 latrines collapsed in the camp contributing to the reduction in latrine coverage from 48% last year to 32.6% this year.

The district leaders warned households in the two camps to consider building latrines in two weeks or miss the next food ration in their respective areas.
