As of 30th July 2017, 82,322 South Sudanese refugees were registered or pre-registered in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
Fighting in South Sudan in proximity to the border with the Haut-Uélé and Ituri provinces was ongoing and continued to cause a flow of refugees arriving in the DRC.
During the reporting week, 424 South Sudanese refugees were registered at the Meri site (Haut-Uélé province) and Biringi site (Ituri province), compared to 575 of the previous week.
In July, fighting in the Greater Equatoria region and Upper Nile drove further population displacement. In Central Equatoria, government forces allegedly attacked a civilian settlement on the outskirts of Yei town, leaving many dead. More clashes were reported about five kilometres outside Yei town. Heavy fighting was also reported between opposition and government forces in Jalei, Kajo-keji County. In Western Equatoria, fighting between opposition and government forces was reported in Lanyi, Mundri West County, leaving dozens dead, including civilians.

Somalia grant of US$ 34.8 million set to benefit 804,000 individuals
South Sudan grant of US$ 43.8 million set to benefit 300,000 individuals
Pastoralists and agro-pastoralist households among the target beneficiaries; Women, children, elderly and disabled to be prioritized
In June, WFP reached 2.5 million people, 67% targeted under the PRRO. This included 1.8 million people with general food assistance, and 80,327 children under five and 35,489 pregnant and lactating women with nutrition assistance. Due to shortages in food and nutrition commodities impacting activities, WFP was unable to reach its planned targets. WFP will be able to reach its targets when food and nutrition resources are replenished.
The refugee crisis in South Sudan is one of the most alarming humanitarian situations in the world. Millions of South Sudanese are fleeing from brutal violence and extensive food insecurity. 86% of those who seek safety in neighboring countries are women and children, including at least 75,000 children who have become separated from their families, many of whom are in poor health.
