JUBA, South Sudan – Nyomon Lilian will never forget the day she decided to become a midwife.

It was a few years ago, in her hometown of Kajo Keji, in South Sudan’s Equatoria region. She watched as her neighbour bled out after giving birth.

The woman was rushed to the hospital, but it was too late. She died, leaving behind five small children.

“Watching my neighbour die during childbirth emboldened me to make the decision to enrol in midwifery [school],” said Ms. Nyomon, 25. “The woman assisting her had no knowledge of what to do.”

People seeking shelter at protection sites in Mingkaman in the Greater Lakes region decry what they call “funding gaps” and call on the international community to alleviate the humanitarian crisis situation they are going through.

Many humanitarian actors have left the area due to a lack of funds. Decreased resources mean that those in need are now living on reduced rations as the few remaining relief organizations struggle to deliver adequate social services to the densely populated protection sites.
