As war continues in South Sudan, ACT Alliance assists displaced families

Report
ACT Alliance

As war between the government and rebels in South Sudan drags on, ACT Alliance continues to provide life-saving support to tens of thousands of civilians who have fled the fighting.

The war builds on decades of unresolved ethnic and political tensions within the ruling party. Since fighting broke out in December, it has forced more than 250,000 to seek shelter in neighbouring countries and left over 800,000 people displaced within South Sudan. What began as a split within the ruling party quickly ripped the country apart along ethnic fault lines.
