Highlights

  • South Sudanese continue to cross the border into Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan. Over 140,000 have arrived since mid-December and UNHCR projects that the number could rise to 320,000 by the end of the year.

  • WFP assists new arrivals at border crossings, reception centres and camps, with a particular focus on the nutritional status of children and pregnant and lactating women. Coordination with UNHCR ensures that assistance is timely and effective under difficult circumstances.

  • Food pipelines are stretched and WFP requires immediate contributions to meet the needs of those who have recently arrived.
