Save the Children has warned of an escalating refugee crisis in the border  region between Sudan and South Sudan,BBC said

The charity said that fighting along the disputed border had led to a huge influx of refugees, with about 2,000 children arriving at crowded camps in South Sudan every day.

Thousands of families are arriving at the camps each day “hungry and terrified after walking for days to reach safety”, said Jon Cunliffe, Save the Children’s South Sudan country director.

It reported that mortality rates in the Jamam camp, one of three in South Sudan’s Upper Nile State, were nearly double the threshold to be considered an emergency.

The conflict between South Sudan and Sudan North has left thousands of people displaced. The battles emanate from the demarcation of the border and share oil profits.
