HIGHLIGHTS

  • As of 3 July, between 100 and 200 new IDPs in malnourished conditions are arriving each day at the PoC site at the UNMISS base in Unity State capital (Bentiu) to seek refuge and assistance.

  • As of 2 July, cholera continues to spread affecting 2,613 people with outbreaks confirmed in seven out of ten states. There have been 63 deaths.

  • According to OCHA’s latest report, over 9,000 children have been recruited into armed forces since January 2014.

  • Thousands of displaced people living in either flood-prone or congested areas were relocated to new sites to improve their living conditions amid ongoing rains.

  • Considering the scope of the ongoing conflict in South Sudan and the corresponding intervention that is required, humanitarian partners have agreed to revise and update the current Inter-Agency Appeal (South Sudan Regional Response Plan) to reflect the changes in the increased planning figures and the corresponding needs. The launch of the revised Appeal is foreseen for 11 July in Geneva and 18 July in Nairobi.
