Highlights

  • WFP urgently requires US$107 million for the next six months to meet the needs of all refugees in Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan.

  • The resource situation remains critical in all the four countries. Shortfalls may require WFP to implement ration cuts and stop selected activities such as school meals and blanket supplementary feeding, in order to prioritize assistance for new arrivals. This will have a negative impact on the nutrition situation of beneficiaries.

  • Since mid-December, more than 421,000 South Sudanese have arrived in Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan.

  • WFP issued a donor funding alert for both the South Sudan and the regional refugee crisis. The alert requests for US$450 million to further scale-up its resources and to support a growing number of refugees in neighbouring countries through the end of the year.
