Report
from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 31 Jul 2014

Highlights

• Partners reached 2.4 million people with some form of assistance by July 2014. This represents 63 per cent of the 3.8 million people planned to be assisted by the end of 2014.

• While the cholera outbreak was relatively contained in the month of July in Central Equatoria, the disease spread to new locations in Eastern Equatoria and Upper Nile states.

• Aid organizations continued to face increasing access and logistics challenges as most major roads were becoming impassible due to rains. Through rapid response operations, assistance has reached over 870,000 people in hard-to-reach areas since March.

• Flooding worsened living conditions in the Protection of Civilians (PoC) site in Bentiu, Unity State. Partners continued to improve access to clean water and improved sanitation and the drainage system in all PoC sites.
