Informing Communities


Involving communities is indispensable in ensuring a successful DDR process. Timely, clear and correct information about DDR should reach both the actual DDR participants, former combatants, women associated with armed forces, and the communities receiving them.

This section provides key messages and other tools to help  accurately inform you on the DDR process in South Sudan.

HE Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, on the occasion of the Southern Sudan DDR launch, 10th June 2009:

"I expect all the Southern Sudanese to welcome their returning heroes with open arms, sympathy and pride. Never forget what was sacrificed on behalf of the marginalized people of Sudan and particularly the people of Southern Sudan.”
