UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is today renewing its concern over the unstable situation in Burundi, which continues to drive people to seek safety in neighbouring countries. Since April 2015, some 410,000 refugees and asylum seekers have been forced to flee their homes. These numbers are still rising.
As famine takes hold in South Sudan and threatens to spread to northeastern Nigeria, Somalia, and Yemen, world leaders must immediately step up to fully fund the United Nations’ appeal for $6.3 billion. Of this amount, $4.9 billion is urgently needed by July for critical assistance, including health, food, nutrition, and water. If lives are to be saved, humanitarian agencies must be able to rapidly scale up and access people in need.
In February, the humanitarian situation continued to deteriorate, culminating in the declaration of localized famine in Mayendit and Leer Counties in Unity on 20 February. Some 100,000 people are facing starvation. and a further 1 million people are classified as being on the brink of famine across the country. There are now 4.9 million severely food insecure people in South Sudan and this number is expected to rise to 5.5 million at the height of the lean season in July.
"They just slaughter you, whether you're a man, woman, or child," says Maria. "I lost all my brothers and my relatives. Life here is very difficult."
