With the lean season beginning, an estimated 5.5 million people across South Sudan were facing severe food insecurity in May, including some 1.46 million on the brink of famine. The month saw the number of people displaced continuing to rise, albeit at a slower rate compared to April. At least 60,000 South Sudanese fled as refugees in May. Clashes in and around Yei in Central Equatoria caused an average of 2,000 refugees to arrive daily into Uganda from 15 to 21 May.
