Despite South Sudan’s developing peace process, the humanitarian situation in the country remained dire throughout the month of September with loss of live and fresh displacements (both internal and across international borders) continuing.In Juba, support to the displaced community, who were relocated in August from Protection of Civilian (PoC) site 3 to Mangateen as a security measure due to intercommunal tensions, remained a priority. As the Ebola disease outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) continued to spread in North Kivu, an area near to South Sudan and Uganda, the humanitarian community in South Sudan began vital Ebola preparedness and prevention activities. South Sudan continues to be one of the most dangerous places to deliver aid. On 03 September 2018, a national staff of a non-governmental organization (NGO) was killed in an armed ambush in Limbe, Yei County, Central Equatoria.
