Internews set up Mingkaman 100 FM in South Sudan in 2014 as part of its emergency response to the rapidly growing humanitarian crisis in the country, to begin urgently broadcasting news and information for the almost 100,000 people displaced by the fighting into the small community of Mingkaman.

“The community looked at it that radio was the easier way to get their interests solved,” says Chris Marol Maker, Network Managing Editor, The Radio Community. “If they come to the radio and they say, ‘we have this problem,’ it will make the authority and the humanitarian actors to act immediately, as soon as there’s a possible way to solve that problem.”
