SENS was conducted for South Sudanese refugees in settlements in South Kordofan State, Sudan to assess the general health and nutrition status of the refugee population, and formulate workable recommendations for appropriate nutritional and public health interventions. Results indicate critical (>15%) global acute malnutrition (GAM), with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) above emergency levels (>2%). The findings also point to the wider effects of chronic under-funding for the response, especially for WASH, health and livelihoods assistance.

When Akur Anyang Thuch (33) from Panyagor started a tailoring course, her friends and close relatives thought she was out of her mind. In this strongly conservative community, her career choice was not only seen as ‘strange’ but also a threat to a long held tradition that women’s work should be confined to domestic chores.

“It was tough to convince people that a woman can be a successful tailor,” says Akur. “Now, even my friends who were against the idea are coming to learn tailoring.”
