JUBA (15 December 2017) – Four years after the beginning of the South Sudan conflict, the leading humanitarian organization CARE is deeply concerned by the risk of famine as rates of hunger and malnutrition continue to rise. Presently, seven million South Sudanese are in need of lifesaving assistance – deeply affected by conflict, displacement, hunger and a collapsing economy.
As part of the What Works to Prevent Violence against Women and Girls consortium, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the Global Women’s Institute at the George Washington University (GWI) and CARE International UK sought to obtain rigorous data on the prevalence, forms, and drivers of VAWG in South Sudan. The study used quantitative and qualitative methods to explore the situation of women and girls in ve settings in South Sudan: Juba City, Juba County, Rumbek Centre, two Protection of Civilian (PoC) sites in Juba, and one PoC site in Bentiu.
Since violence erupted in South Sudan in 2014, more than a million people have fled to safety in Uganda. South Sudanese refugees have been warmly welcomed by the African nation. When refugees arrive, they are given vaccinations, a warm meal, even a plot of land and the resources to begin constructing their new home. And the support doesn’t stop there: CARE is training women leaders in the community to form savings groups, start businesses, and be healthcare workers.
Après dix ans de régression quasi constante, la faim dans le monde a brusquement augmenté. Pourtant, nous produisons suffisamment pour nourrir deux fois la population mondiale. Alors quelles sont les causes de ce drame ? Voici cinq points pour comprendre pourquoi la faim fait de si nombreuses victimes.

An unprecedented drought is affecting East Africa and it is not expected to end any time soon. That means there are more hard times ahead – but from what I saw on my recent visit, the people of South Sudan and Somalia are determined (with CARE’s help and thanks to the generosity of the UK public) to get through it.
More people have died delivering aid in Syria than anywhere else in 2017, an analysis by international aid organisation CARE Australia has found.
New figures reveal 80 aid workers have been killed this year, including 29 in Syria where there has been intense fighting since 2011.
“Syria is the most dangerous place on earth to be an aid worker,” said CARE Australia’s Gender in Emergencies Specialist Isadora Quay.

The year 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the Global Shelter Cluster, the inter-agency coordination mechanism for shelter response. During these ten years, coordination has improved in consistency, shelter responses have grown in scale, and there are more people with experience in shelter programming, but people continue to lose their dwellings and be displaced due to conflict and natural disasters. Global humanitarian shelter needs continue to greatly exceed the capacity and resources to respond.
One night, at a refugee settlement in Uganda, 26-year-old Joyce (not pictured above) watched in fear as her husband continued to drink and his behaviour became increasingly erratic. Ever since they’d fled the war in South Sudan, her husband’s drinking had gotten worse and sometimes led to violent outbursts. As he became more intoxicated, he started yelling and hitting her. Suddenly, he grabbed a machete and threatened to cut her. Terrified, Joyce grabbed their six children and ran to a neighbour’s tent.
JUBA, South Sudan—(June 21, 2017)-- According to an early warning famine report released today, areas of South Sudan in famine have improved; but the country is experiencing the most alarming levels of food insecurity in its history. In June and July, the number of people suffering from extreme hunger will rise to six million from 4.9 million in January. That is half of the population in South Sudan – the highest number ever recorded in the country. People who are displaced within South Sudan due to the conflict and the host communities where they sought safety are the most affected.
KAMPALA- (June 12, 2017)- Ahead of the ‘Uganda Solidarity Summit on Refugees’ on June 22-23, CARE International warns of the alarming health and safety risks for refugee women and girls fleeing the continuous fighting and famine in South Sudan. An average of 2,000 refugees are arriving daily into northwestern Uganda.

Darius Sanyatwe, CARE food security expert, writes from South Sudan:
The beginning of 2017 saw my worst fears come true, with the declaration of famine for hundreds of thousands of people in parts of Unity State in the northern-central part of South Sudan.
For those of us working in the country and in the field of food security the warning signs have been there since 2014. This was not just something that happened overnight.
27 humanitarian agencies working in South Sudan have warned that unless substantial funds are immediately provided to those working on the ground, organisations will struggle to stop famine spreading across the country in the next few months. The statement follows Monday’s declaration of famine in parts of the country.
A Progressive Gender Analysis: 2013 - 2016
Juba, September 28, 2016. - CARE is worried about the new spread of fighting and insecurity to the Greater Equatoria region, an area previously largely unaffected by the conflict that has engulfed the country since December 2013. CARE assessments in Imatong State (Eastern Equatoria) show largescale displacement, with many homes burnt and looted during the fighting, and attacks on civilians and NGOs becoming increasingly common.
October 12, Brussels – Multi-sectoral experts will meet in Brussels today to discuss the urgent issue of gender-based violence that is prevalent worldwide, and gets particularly worse in conflict and among displaced populations. For example, in camps and host communities, lack of security and inadequate protection leave women and girls vulnerable to rape and harassment. Women and girls are disproportionately more affected than men in times of crisis.
- Executive Summary
The reported displacement of tens of thousands of people in South Sudan’s Greater Equatoria region reflects notable deterioration in security throughout July and August 2016. More than two and a half years since the beginning of the current conflict in South Sudan, 2.6 million people remain displaced, including 1.6 million internally displaced people, and 1 million that have crossed into neighboring countries, more than 200,000 of these since July 2016.
1. Executive Summary
The second phase of the multisector assessment took place in three locations in Ikwoto County from 1st – 4th September 2016 and revealed needs among both displaced and host communities, all of which derive from the compound pressures of conflict on existing food insecurity.
