South Sudan: Humanitarian Funding Update (as of 12 May 2014)

Originally published


The crisis in South Sudan has led to conflict, displacement and suffering on a huge scale. Humanitarian agencies are focused on three top priorities: saving lives through immediate response to the survival needs of the most vulnerable; mitigating the looming threat of famine for those at greatest risk, providing food and nutrition assistance and supporting livelihood activities; and preventing the loss of a generation by protecting those most exposed to violence, abuse and disruption to education.

A total of $1.8 billion is needed to reach up to 4 million people during 2014. $536m (30%) of this amount has been secured, and $1.26 billion (70%) in additional funding is urgently needed.
