A fight for education like you’ve never seen before | UNICEF
Description: 72% of children in South Sudan are not in school. In times of crisis quality education offers hope and the possibility of a future. 27 million children are out of school in conflict zones and only 50% of refugee children are enrolled in primary school.

Four Famines: Fragility, Resilience, and the Role of International Development
Description: More than 20 million people in Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan, and Nigeria are facing famine conditions and possible starvation. It has been called the largest humanitarian crisis the world has seen in decades. Of the $4.9 billion the United Nations desperately needs to respond to these crises, only $2.5 billion has been received. Meanwhile, the humanitarian disaster is deepening, largely due to escalating conflict in each of the four countries. Humanitarian assistance and international development have different objectives and time horizons, but must work together to respond to the crisis at hand while also preventing the next one from occurring. What role does international development play in building long-term resilience? What are the linkages between conflict, fragility, and severe food insecurity? How can U.S. leadership and international development programming break the cycle of instability and famine?

Oxfam in Uganda's Water Response to the South Sudan Refugee Crisis
Description: Stand with refugees, share the message. Uganda now hosts over 1 million South Sudanese refugees living in the different settlements of Arua, Adjumani, Yumbe and Lamwo districts. The vast majority of refugees – 86 per cent – are women and children who need specific support to keep them safe from rape, beatings, torture, hunger and abandonment. Uganda is also a host country for refugees from DRC, Burundi, and CAR. One of the settlements is Imvepi Refugee Settlement opened in February 2017 and currently hosting more than 300,000 refugees; with over 800 new arrivals every day. 97% of the water in the settlement is trucked and the remaining 3% is sourced from existing boreholes that have been rehabilitated as more sustainable water solutions are being looked into. James, an Oxfam Public Health Engineering Officer, explains the situation and the work Oxfam is doing, reaching thousands of South Sudan refugees with vital clean water. The South Sudan refugee response in Uganda and across the region is severely underfunded. In Uganda, of the UN appeal for $673million this year(2017), only 17 per cent has been received so far. At the recent Refugee Solidarity Summit the Government of Uganda appealed for $2billion to meet the humanitarian and development needs of all refugees in the country. Less than a quarter was pledged towards this with just $431.1million committed. Donor governments must urgently release funds critical in supporting refugees with life-saving aid, and long-term support for those who have already fled their country.

Life as a Refugee - South Sudan in Focus
Description: Imagine if you had no choice but to flee your country. Where would you go? How would you cope? What would you need to rebuild your life in exile? These are the questions that three million South Sudanese have had to ask themselves in the face an unrelenting civil war, famine, violence and persecution. And as conflicts across the globe have forced millions to flee their homes, the international debate on refugee policy rages on. How does South Sudan fit into this broader narrative, and what lessons can be learned from its citizens cast into uncertain exile? Join World Affairs as we examine this pressing global issue from both policy and human perspectives. Gabriel Akim, spokesperson for Rebuild South Sudan, Diana Essex-Lettieri, Deputy Director of Asylum Access, and Valentino Achak Deng, co-founder of the Valentino Achak Deng Foundation, will call upon their unique expertise and personal experience to shed light on what it means to be displaced from war-torn South Sudan. As part of our "Engage" series, this event features a post-discussion Q&A, when you will have the chance to participate directly with the speaker and gain incredible insights that you won't get anywhere else.
