New Settlements in Yei River and Dororolilli

During 1983 ACROSS set up 4 new settlements – Total now 11 – Adio in Yei River and Dororolilli (3650), Mambe (3158) and Zesi (2536) south of Maridi. 36,000 Ugandans were now under ACROSS care.

Two years later (1985) there were 9 settlements in Yei River district and 7 in Maridi district = 16 settlements and 60,000 people under ACROSS care.

In this program there was good co-operation between Ugandans and Sudanese with the latter generally able to benefit from services set up for the refugees.
