South Sudan Crisis Situation Report as of 10 March 2014 number 26

Report
from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 10 Mar 2014

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Early rains in Juba caused flooding in the UN Tomping displacement site, destroying hundreds of shelters and exacerbating already difficult living conditions.

  • Food partners have provided emergency food assistance to 428,900 conflict-affected people since the start of 2014, and continued regular food support to 335,700 other vulnerable people, including refugees inside South Sudan.

  • Partners are reporting an increase in obstacles to humanitarian operations, including along key roads into Unity and Upper Nile states.

  • Funding gaps hamper the response. For example, 390,000 children in need of protection services risk going without support if more funds are not provided.
