"Responding to the appeal made by the Secretary General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, we have arranged, through Italian Cooperation, a package of humanitarian aid worth 10 million euros in response to the very serious food crisis that is endangering the survival of 20 million people in Yemen, South Sudan, Nigeria and Somalia, including 1.4 million children under 5 with acute malnutrition problems".
Italy has allocated 3.9 million euros for emergency interventions to support the provision of essential services to South Sudanese refugees and to the most vulnerable segments of the hosting populations in South Sudan and in the neighbouring Countries (Uganda and Ethiopia). Lack of food and assistance, compounded to precarious hygiene and sanitary conditions, determine a real threat of famine, epidemics and tension between the refugees and the local populations.

Panyikwara is a village 80km South West of Torit, in Magwi County of Eastern Equatoria. The community showed remarkable commitment in supporting the education of its children.
In fact, the Ministry of General Education and Instruction (MoGEI), with the operational assistance from UNOPS (the UN agency responsible for infrastructure development) has built and equipped four classrooms, one office and staff room, latrines and a kitchen, plus a bore hole with hand pump.
The handover ceremony to deliver the infrastructure for the St. Theresa, East Torit and West Torit primary schools to the South Sudanese Education Ministry is taking place today, 4 April 2012. The structures include toilet facilities, at St. Teresa and West Torit, and a four-classroom pavilion, with offices, in East Torit.
Italian Development Cooperation is supporting the World Food Programme (WFP) in South Sudan, with the approval of a voluntary emergency donation of 800,000 for food aid initiatives.
The Italian donation will go to “Emergency Operation (EMOP) 200338 - Food Assistance to Vulnerable Population” formulated by the WFP for 2012. The goal of the project is to combat food insecurity and malnutrition. It aims to help 2.6 vulnerable people by providing urgent food supplies in 9 out of 10 states before the arrival of the rainy season, expected in March–April next year.
