South Sudan's Overwhelming Humanitarian Needs

The conflict that erupted last week in South Sudan drove 30,000 more people from their homes, and left aid groups straining to provide care.

NPR’s Goats and Soda spoke to humanitarian aid workers about needs on the ground, as they treat people suffering from severe trauma, rape, and injuries alongside illnesses.

Leslie McTyre of the International Medical Corps said they need dressings, fluids to hydrate patients, trauma kits with antibiotics, and rape kits. "In conditions like this we have to split (the rape kits) up between 4 different women,” McTyre added.
