The situation in South Sudan continues to decline catastrophically. We are providing life-giving assistance to internally displaced persons and communities.

Grave Humanitarian Crisis
Situation Continues to Decline

The violence that erupted on 15 December 2013 in the capital Juba has escalated along ethnic lines in different parts of the country. Some 1.5 million have been displaced: 1.1 million internally and nearly 400,000 to neighboring countries. Over 90 percent of the displaced within South Sudan is in remote areas of the country. As the fighting interrupted the planting season, there is widespread food insecurity, rising child malnutrition and imminent risk of famine. Ethnic, sexual and gender-based violence remain a grave concern.
