Dear Colleagues,

More than 100,000 households are displaced in Pibor, Uror and Duk counties in Jonglei state of South Sudan and in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. This humanitarian crisis is a result of retaliatory attacks in the inter-communal conflict in the state, which continued until late January 2012. The tribal conflict was a result of many factors including: socio-economic, political, historical enmity and presence of small arms.

The conflict has disrupted livelihoods and has resulted to a complex humanitarian situation characterized by food insecurity, deteriorating health, insecurity, and huge population movements.

ACT Alliance members in South Sudan are working in collaboration with local authorities, affected communities, UN agency representatives and other NGOs/INGOs and have initiated a relief operation targeting 10,500 households in Pibor, Uror and Duk counties. Lutheran World Federation will lead in this response on behalf of the ACT Alliance South Sudan Forum members. The project will provide non-food item kits (NFIs), shelter materials, seeds, fishing hooks, sanitation training, access to clean water services, psychosocial support, emergency education (schools) and support peace building initiatives. The initiative will also work towards an early recovery for the very vulnerable households.

ACT Alliance members in South Sudan include: Norwegian Church Aid (NCA),The Lutheran World Federation (LWF), Interchurch Organization for Development Co-operation (ICCO) & Kerk in Actie, Christian Aid (CA), Sudan Council of Churches (SCC), Finn Church Aid (FCA), Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe (DKH), DanChurchAid (DCA), Evangelischer Entwicklungsdienst (EED) – (Evangelical Dev. Service), The Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CRWRC), Presbyterian Development Assistance, and Uniting World.

The total cost for this proposed response is USD1, 702,082 and will be implemented over a period of six months (Jan- June 2012).

This full appeal replaces the preliminary appeal issued on the 18th of January 2012.
