Internews in South Sudan has developed an innovative recorded audio program to provide life-saving and life-enhancing information to people displaced at four of the UNMISS Protection of Civilians sites across South Sudan following the conflict that broke out in the country in mid-December 2013.
The service utilizes a quad bike that moves around the site playing the programs in dedicated public spaces, at “Listening Stops,” through speakers that are bolted to the bike.

“They are very very flexible,” says Victoria Parr, UN House POC Camp Manager, of the Internews journalists. “They listen to what the NGOs need. They listen to what the community needs. They’re incredibly integrated. A lot of their staff actually live in the camps. And so they are able to tape a message very well and also react very quickly to trends that are happening in the camp.”
