South Sudan


Emergency response - Since the end of 2013, conflict has devastated millions of lives. Alarming levels of malnutrition are seen across the country and the rates are higher than anywhere else in the world. Families have been uprooted.  There are outbreaks of deadly disease. Women have few places to safely give birth. Thousands of lives are at risk. The need for humanitarian aid is enormous. In addition, the insecurity, lack of useable roads, and harsh terrain make it challenging for humanitarian relief organisations to reach the isolated families who most need life-saving help.

The Emergency Response Programme provides response to sudden emergencies like floods, outbreaks, and mass displacement across the entire country. Teams of experts in health, nutrition, hygiene, safe drinking water, sanitation, shelter, and distribution of essential supplies are able to respond quickly and bring swift relief to tens of thousands of people across the country each year.

This project is funded with relief funds from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the Dutch Relief Alliance Joint Response 2 for South Sudan. The project is implemented in partnership with Medair, our Integral Alliance Partner.
