Report
World Vision

By Kamira James

The conflict in South Sudan has left many families torn apart. Many women fled with their own children together with other children as they sought for a safe place to stay in.

This is the common tale for many mothers you come across in the refugee settlements in Adjumani district. Families are headed by single mothers who have also fostered many separated and un-accompanied children.

Report
ACT Alliance

As war between the government and rebels in South Sudan drags on, ACT Alliance continues to provide life-saving support to tens of thousands of civilians who have fled the fighting.

The war builds on decades of unresolved ethnic and political tensions within the ruling party. Since fighting broke out in December, it has forced more than 250,000 to seek shelter in neighbouring countries and left over 800,000 people displaced within South Sudan. What began as a split within the ruling party quickly ripped the country apart along ethnic fault lines.

Ethiopia Weekly Humanitarian Bulletin, 21 April 2014

Key Events

  • Assessment results in Boricha and Dale woredas of SNNPR suggest that the under-estimation of relief food beneficiaries and the absence/delay in Targeted Supplementary Feeding (TSF) interventions are likely parts of the reasons for the high increase in TFP admissions in the areas.
