Part 3 in a 3-part series
South Sudan celebrated its first year of independence on 9 July 2012. But becoming the world's newest country has not brought an end to the years of armed conflict. The latest fighting around the northern border with Sudan escalated in April.
The ICRC operates an air ambulance service, flying landmine victims and casualties of the fighting to the Juba Physical Rehabilitation Centre. This joint ICRC/South Sudanese government centre is the only one of its kind in the country, but getting there would be too difficult and too expensive for many South Sudanese. Thanks to the ICRC's air operation, people from remote areas of South Sudan are able to receive artificial limbs, physical rehabilitation services and treatment for wounds.
