South Sudan: $1.6 billion needed to provide life-saving assistance
Description: A day after famine was declared in parts of South Sudan, humanitarian organizations gathered today to launch the 2017 Humanitarian Response Plan, which appeals for US$1.6 billion to provide life-saving assistance and protection to 5.8 million people across the country in 2017. Humanitarian organizations estimate that some 7.5 million people in South Sudan now need humanitarian assistance and protection. Since the conflict began in December 2013, about 3.4 million people have been forced to flee their homes, including nearly 1.9 million people who have been internally displaced and about 1.5 million who fled as refugees to neighboring countries. Food security and livelihoods have been decimated, with 100,000 people facing starvation and a further 1 million on the brink of famine. One million children are estimated to be acutely malnourished. It is estimated that more than 5.5 million people will face severe food insecurity at the height of the lean season in July. - At the launch of the appeal, the Humanitarian Coordinator for South Sudan, Mr. Eugene Owusu, called for immediate action to enable free, safe and unhindered humanitarian access; safety and security of aid workers; and funding to rapidly scale-up the humanitarian operation, while the Minister for Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Mr. Hussein Mar, reiterated the commitment of the Government of the Republic of South Sudan to remove obstacles encountered by aid workers striving to deliver urgently needed humanitarian assistance and protection.
