Ms. Aluat said she received plastic sheets, a blanket, soap and cooking utensils.
“I am happy to have received the non-food items from CIRDA, which got the items
from Samaritan’s Purse. It is a great relief,” she said.
“Now some of the relatives don’t want to share their sleeping materials with us
because we ran away from the conflict zone. I am so glad to have received the
items,” Aluat added.
Garang Diing is another returnee who hails from Pan-apuoth village.
“We were registered, and we never knew that the support would come in such
