In 2017, World Vision's response to the South Sudan Hunger Crisis has reached 1.15 Million people.
We have provided:
- 913,000 people with food assistance
- 288,000 with health and nutrition support
- 125,000 with clean water and sanitation services
- 40,000 with protection and education services
- 24,000 with shelter items and essential relief supplies
- 16,000 with food security and income generation activities
Going forward, we're hoping to reach another 1.3 Million people in the next six months of the response.
We continue to be concerned that:
- The security situation is deteriorating
- More families are facing food insecurity (50% of the population)
- The economic situation is worsening, particularly in urban areas where food prices have dramatically increased
- A cholera outbreak continues
- The overall humanitarian response is only half funded
- There are difficulties in reached some affected populations due to armed conflict, general insecurity, weather and poor transportation networks
World Vision South Sudan is requesting an additional $15 million US to reach 1.3 Million people during the next six months.
