IOM South Sudan launches the mid year review of the 2015 Consolidated Appeal
Midway into 2015 and 19 months since the start of the crisis, the humanitarian concerns in South Sudan are as pressing as ever. With over 2.1 million people having been forced from their homes and 4.6 million severely food insecure, IOM and other humanitarians have struggled to keep pace with the unprecedented and expanding needs of the displaced and vulnerable in South Sudan.
Taking into consideration the continued displacement and significant needs of conflict affected populations, IOM South Sudan has expanded the original appeal to include additional IDP site improvement projects, a bolstered water and sanitation supplies pipeline and common humanitarian services through the provision of humanitarian hubs, the procurement and transportation of emergency shelter and non-food items, and the expansion of the displacement tracking matrix.
Developed in line with UN OCHA led multi-agency Humanitarian Response Plan, IOM in South Sudan is proud to release the 2015 IOM South Sudan Midyear Consolidated Appeal. The appeal highlights IOM South Sudan 2015 achievements thus far and charts the way forward for IOM’s humanitarian programming for the rest of the calendar year.
