Dear Colleagues,

The political climate in South Sudan remains uncertain since the violence erupted in December 2013.
Since then, chronic conflict and insecurity situations, drought and elevated food insecurity in the country are still massive and have greatly contributed to continued high levels of humanitarian need and protracted displacement of vulnerable people. More than 2.29 million people have fled their homes since the fighting broke out in December 2013, with over 1.65 million displaced inside South Sudan and more than 630’000 refugees in the neighboring countries. Inside South Sudan, more than 184,000 people are currently sheltering in the Protection of Civilians (PoC) sites in UN bases. The conflict continues to negatively impact the country’s economy as sustainable development is now virtually at a standstill leaving about 4.6 million of the population mainly women and children in need of urgent lifesaving humanitarian assistance and protection.

ACT forum in South Sudan is planning to attend to the affected communities through food, shelter and NFIs distribution, WASH, health and emergency nutrition, early recovery and CMDRR, livelihoods restoration as well as education and psychosocial support.

The ACT Secretariat is requesting urgent indications of pledges/funding latest by 4 th , January 2016 to help the ACT members responding in South Sudan to make decisions and proceed with this response
