Grandmother Unice Keji, 58, sits beside her three grandchildren: Simon Jeden, the eldest, Rizik Jeden, and Alfred Idi, the youngest. All of Unice's children are suspected cholera patients. "We drink borehole water which is not dirty. Possibly, the cholera was caused by the lack of proper toilets and the poor disposal of rubbish which the children ended up playing with. Children also do not wash their hands after visiting the toilets - that could be the assumed causes of the cholera."
Since the South Sudanese Ministry of Health declared a cholera outbreak in Juba, the country's capital, on 15 May 2014, more than 1,306 patients have been treated for the disease, and 29 people have died as at 05 June 2014. MSF has set up a CTC in the district of Gudele 2, and two smaller CTCs in the two IDP camps in UN bases. There are several MSF Oral Rehydration points close to the affected areas of Juba, and support is provided to the MoH in the Juba Teaching Hospital.
