  • Many civilians remain in the bush, cut off from assistance. It is important that civilians feel safe enough to return to areas where they can access assistance and/or resume their livelihoods.
  • The six main population centres in Pibor County (Boma, Gumuruk,
    Likuangole, Manyabol, Maruwa Hills and Pibor) are either partially or completely abandoned, although in Gumuruk people move in and out to receive assistance.
  • The Central Emergency Response Fund allocated US$6 million to aid agencies to deliver food assistance, nutrition supplements, and water and sanitation supplies to people affected by hostilities in Jonglei State.
