This Revised Emergency Appeal reflects a plan for the Federation-wide consolidated response from the International Federation and its member Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies to support the efforts of the South Sudan Red Cross (SSRC) in areas of South Sudan that have not been directly affected by the conflict
Humanitarian partners are seeking $982 million for 419 projects in eleven sectors throughout Sudan. A total of 6.9 million people (about 20 per cent of the population) have been identified as requiring assistance.
UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs:
The situation of the IDPs in South Sudan and the refugees in the neighbouring countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda has changed, in some cases dramatically, since the first Regional Refugee Response Plan (Inter-Agency Appeal for the South Sudanese Refugee Emergency, Jan-Dec 2014).
Regional Response Appeal to assist displaced populations
Following the South Sudan crisis which has left many people killed and displaced, NRC has launched a regional emergency appeal to make it possible for a meaningful humanitarian action to take place.
During a recent visit to Awerial, NRC Secretary General Jan Egeland witnessed the poor conditions that internally displaced persons were living in, with multiple families clustered around every tree or bush seeking shelter from harsh climate.
Before the crisis, South Sudan was already the scene of one of the world’s largest humanitarian operations – responding to structural food insecurity, large refugee populations, intra-tribal violence, floods, drought and austerity caused by the halt in oil production in 2013.
This revised Emergency Appeal supports the Sudanese Red Crescent Society to deliver assistance to some 213,000 people (an increase from 150,000 people), and increases the budget to CHF 5.3m (from CHF 3.7m), with a total appeal timeframe of 24 months.
With the current contributions (cash and in-kind) totalling some CHF 1,028,462 (28% of the current budget), the total revised amount being sought is just over CHF 4.3 million.
The pace and numbers of cross-border
arrivals exceed the initial planning figures set at the onset of the crisis. The total planning figure for 2014 has therefore been raised to 350,000 refugees across the region.
The internal conflict that started in the capital city of Juba in South Sudan on 15 December rapidly spread to other parts of the country, with worst affected states being Jonglei, Unity and Upper Nile state. The conflict has resulted in casualties, wounded and missing among the affected population and had an overall impact on the situation in the country, creating long term humanitarian consequences for the affected population, including massive displacement in the country and into neighbouring countries (Uganda,
Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya).
To contribute the reduction of excess morbidity and mortality among displaced people and host communities affected by the current crisis, through strengthening health emergency preparedness and response capacity at all levels in South Sudan
To ensure access to and delivery of quality primary and secondary health care services through restoration and expansion of life-saving health care services to affected population, with particular focus on the most vulnerable group.
