Over the past week, the number of people sheltered at UNMISS Rubkona Protection of Civilians (PoC) site in Bentiu (Unity), has increased to over 22,000 IDPs. WFP has continued to provide critical food assistance and distribute HEBs to new arrivals from Bentiu town, at the main gate of the PoC site.
Since the eruption of the violence on 15 April WFP has been able to assist 22,690 people, with a total of 121 mt of mixed food commodities.
Despite the volatile security conditions in the three conflict affected states, six mobile distribution teams are currently on the ground in Pochalla, Motot, Lankien, Pibor (Jonglei), Ulang (Upper Nile) for the first round of distributions and in Ganyel (Unity) for a second round of distributions. The mobile distribution teams, which are typically deployed in the most remote and hard to reach locations of the country, prepare drop zones in airdrop locations, register beneficiaries, receive food and organize distributions.
In Jonglei, during the past week, WFP and partners have reached about 8,635 beneficiaries in Haat and Bor. The modalities of assistance include General Food Distribution and Blanket and Targeted Supplementary Feeding Programmes.
The Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) analysis workshop began on 24 April in Yei with analysts from the Government, FEWSNET, FAO, WFP and other partner agencies. The IPC will integrate data from various assessments including FSMS and EFSA, along with secondary data from various sources to form a comprehensive analysis of the food security situation in South Sudan. Once the group analysis is completed, the findings will be shared with the IPC Emergency Review Committee for final technical endorsement.
