One hundred and twenty five women and girls have been raped brutally by some young men who were in military uniforms and some of them were in civilian clothes. They have been attacked so badly that current mental and physical health condition is deplorable. On 1st December, 2018 the doctors said that all these incidents were started on 19th November, 2018 when the women and girls were took part in a food distribution site in Bentiu in Unity state.

In the first ten months of this year 104 victims of sexual violation were medicated by the medical charity’s Bentiu clinic. Pregnant and 10 years old young girls were also become victims of sexual violation. South Sudan government is still silent on this matter.
