Ten months of conict in South Sudan have shattered the lives of millions of people. So far, partners have reached over 3.5 million people with assistance of the 3.8 million targeted. The Crisis Response Plan for 2014 is 61 per cent funded, leaving a shortfall of $696 million. Resources are urgently needed for the most critical requirements until the end of the year. To make the most of the dry season, which begins in November and lasts until May, aid agencies now require $269 million to kick-start operations for 2015, including upgrading key infrastructure and pre-positioning relief items by road.
