SMILE Again Africa Development Organization (SAADO) has developed a searchable message database that can be used to disseminate critical information to affected populations during emergencies in South Sudan.
This follows demand for effective two-way communication between vulnerable communities and humanitarian responders. The information is intended to promote effective humanitarian aid delivery and accountability to the vulnerable communities.
In the rapidly changing context of South Sudan, accurate and timely information can save lives as people can be warned to flee, hide or regroup. Information also plays a crucial role in directing people toward appropriate humanitarian assistance.
South Sudan is facing a ‘complex and multi hazard crisis’, and the central role of communication with communities was emphasised by the UN deputy Humanitarian Coordinator for the country at the launch of the CDAC developed Working Group. More than 70 representatives from UN agencies, international NGOs, national humanitarian organisations, media and the private sector heard the UN’s Sue Lautze outline the gravity of the crisis and say that humanitarian action in South Sudan has to move beyond the logic of ‘you fight, we feed’.
