The South Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church Orphans Trauma and Healing Centre which houses 170 orphan has been submerged, forcing the children to remain in their classes.
The centre caters for children whose parents were killed during clashes between the Lou Nuer and Murle ethnic communities at Pieri payam last August.
“We decided to round up all the orphans to keep them away from the conflict zone. The floods have confined the children to their classrooms as they cannot move within the compound”, said the centre’s manager Peter Yien.
An orphan at the centre, Thap Chol, appealed to the government to supply school uniforms and shoes to the centre.
