Humanitarian appeals have grown by more than 600 per cent in the past decade. The global humanitarian appeal now stands at nearly $20 billion.

CHF SUPPORTS LIFE-SAVING ASSISTANCE - NEW CONTRIBUTIONS URGENTLY NEEDED
In mid-2015, the funding requirements for the South Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) for 2015 were prioritised and revised. As of 8 September, US$878 million - 54 per cent of the requirements had been received, leaving a gap of about $755 million. Resources are required urgently to provide life-saving assistance and protection to people in need.
Over the past month, insecurity and lack of access to vital supplies have continued to force South Sudanese to flee in search of safety, assistance and protection. In August there was increased displacement from Unity and Upper Nile states due to fighting in and around Koch, Leer and Mayendit counties in Unity and Wau Shilluk in Upper Nile. Nearly 78,000 displaced people are now sheltering in Nyal, Panyijiar County, southern Unity, including about 18,000 who arrived in the past two weeks .
The UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) has a funding shortfall of US$9.9 million which if not addressed will force WFP to close down the air service at the end of the month
Humanitarians continue to advocate for the vaccination of 165,000 children in SPLM-N controlled areas of South Kordofan and Blue Nile states
In White Nile State, gaps remain in water and sanitation services for refugees despite the ongoing provision of humanitarian assistance
