Highlights

  • An estimated 743,400 people are displaced inside South Sudan. Another 130,400 people have fled to neighbouring countries.

  • Humanitarian partners have assisted nearly 300,000 people so far; the majority outside UN bases in rural areas.

  • The health situation among civilians in the UN Tomping base in Juba deteriorated due to overcrowding, and insufficient space for latrines and bathing. Health, water and sanitation, and other partners are addressing the causes of the deterioration, and stepping up services to the people in the base.

  • Aid organizations revised the Crisis Response Plan, extending it until June 2014. The plan calls for US$1.27 billion for relief programmes in the coming five months.
