South Sudan: Coordinated CERF-CHF allocations (as of 20 February 2014)
In South Sudan, 3.2 million people are in need of life-saving assistance and more than 707,000 people are internally displaced.
On 2 January, the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) set aside US$15.3 million to help address the most urgent needs. The CERF grant was distributed in coordination with a $43 million allocation from the South Sudan Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF). The CERF funds will be used for camp management, humanitarian air services and safety and security while the CHF will fund critical gaps in humanitarian clusters. Jointly, CERF and CHF provided $58 million to date in 2014.
With almost 150,000 people seeking refuge in neighboring countries, CERF is also providing funding to address needs in Uganda ($6.9 million) and Kenya ($5 million).
