Trade and livestock vaccinations help to keep the peace between neighbors

KHARTOUM, Sudan – 9 June 2015. UNICEF in coordination with its implementing partners and UNHCR has been supporting the Government of Sudan in responding to the humanitarian needs of girls and boys affected by the war in South Sudan, since December 2013. Children represent over 60% of the South Sudanese refugees, as well as over 60% of the Sudanese returnees. Children in host communities, where camps have been established, have been generous by sharing their schools. However, the high demand for education is straining the existing facilities.
Sudan continues to be one of the worst crisis for children in the world today. 3.24 million children are targeted for humanitarian assistance by the Humanitarian Response Plan in 2015. 1.86 million children are estimated to be displaced countrywide and almost 95,000 children are refugees fleeing conflict in South Sudan.

Snapshot 3-9 June 2015
Yemen: 20 million people, close to 80% of the population, are estimated to need humanitarian aid. 500,000 people were displaced in May, bringing the total displaced since 26 March to more than 1 million. The escalation in the conflict has meant two million more people are food insecure, and six million more lack access to healthcare, and 9.4 million lack access to safe water.
Food security and nutrition situation
An estimated 4.6 million people in South Sudan (about 40 per cent of the population) are severely food insecure between May to July 2015 (3.6 million in Crisis and 1 million in Emergency levels). Malnutrition rates remain above the emergency threshold of 15 per cent in both conflict-affected and high-burden states. Nearly one in three children under five are malnourished in the worst-hit areas of Greater Upper Nile, Warrap and Northern Bahr el Ghazal.
5 June 2015 - In a continuing effort to draw police and local residents closer together, 38 Central Equatoria State officers graduated from a confidence and trust building training today in Juba.

The training was the second of two batches, the first of which graduated 39 police officers on 22 May last month, with all participants drawn from Munuki, Khor William and Malakia police posts.
