  • Aid agencies continued to respond to over 23,000 people affected by recent violence in Jonglei State, as tensions persisted ahead of a planned military offensive against non-state armed actors in Pibor County.

  • The UN Humanitarian Air Service has only secured funding until May, potentially paralyzing the entire aid operation for the second half of the year if further funding is not identified.

  • Over 4 million people are anticipated to be food insecure in 2013, of which 1 million will be severely food insecure, according to the latest report from food security partners.
