Fighting between armed groups has driven thousands of people from their villages in Eastern, Central, and Western Equatoria states since the start of January. Several thousand had taken refuge in Uganda.

The Relief Agencies are increasingly concerned at recent growing uncertainty around South Sudan and its serious impact on the civilian population. UNHCR alerted that localised fighting between rebel armed groups and government soldiers and an apparent breakdown in law and order are being reported in and near Yambio, some 300 kilometres west of Juba.

Sporadic gunfire is commonplace, and there has also been an increase in crime involving car-jackings, attacks on government property, looting of civilian homes and sexual assaults,"

At a time of this reporting in 2017:
Your funds and money from other sources helped purchased various difference fruits seedlings; 10 mango seedlings, 5 jackfruits seedlings, 12 avocado seedlings.

These seedlings and other supplies were driven to Magwi County, but due to insecurity, the truck came under attacked and looted by the government forces between Nimule and Amea-Junction, along Juba highway in February 2017.This is bad news to the donors and our beneficiaries who could have planted the seedlings to provide food for future generations.

In next three months, HO will post a new field update report to inform you about the impact of your contributions.

We appreciate you for supporting this cause for more two years.
It was the bodyguards for rebel leader and presidential guards who fought each other in earlier July sparking days of violence which killed many hundreds of soldiers and civilians. The two forces had battled each other, almost five years to the day South Sudan declared independence from Sudan. Following the orders from the leadership on both sides, the clashes ceased temporarily in late in July. The rebels moved their based outside Juba in an attempt to save peace which both parties signed.

In August fighting was in the outskirt of Juba in which the oppositions accused the government of attacking their positions. The rebels regrouped and fled to Congo with Riek Machar, their leader. Over the last few months, the citizens have expressed dissent against the government, as a result of this, the rebellion is growing rapidly in Equatoria Region, which kept itself neutral for much of two years’ civil conflict in Upper Nile State. Other tribes are targeting ethnic Dinka. The humanitarian needs are going to be very great after this, Director General for RRC, told reporters. They are going to need food, shelter, water, he said, adding that the need for shelter and clean water was pressing for those living in a Displaced facility within Juba town.

 At a time of this reporting:
Your money together with money from difference sources you purchased variation fruit seedlings; 8 mango seedlings, six jackfruit seedlings, ten avocado seedlings. Due to insecurity, we were not able to deliver these seedlings to beneficiaries, and we will do so as the security situation improve in Magwi County.

The villagers are keen to see this initiative to make progress by volunteering. However, to keep going, they need your help to plant 4 million seedlings

In next three months, HO will post a new field update to inform you about an impact of your contributions.

Hundreds of workers and citizens took to the streets in Wau, South Sudan second largest city on Friday to protest against the increased of cost of living, and salary in arrears as the leaders warned the country’s economic woes were reaching a crisis point.

Protesters in Wau city, west east of Juba, demonstrated over raising prices of goods and services, and salary in arrears which they said were not matched by current wage structures.

A yawning public sector deficit, a falling local currency and high inflation have heaped pressure on South Sudan, which before independence was seen as a promising emerging economy in East Africa.

 We are pleased that you had been supporting Give Fruit & a Greener Environment project for years.

At a time of this reporting:
Your cash you donated through GlobalGivng and funds from secondary sources you supplied the project with following varieties of fruit trees and these are: 6 mangos seedlings, 2 jack fruit seedlings, and 3 avocado seedlings. These seedlings made their way to project site before the starts of torrential rain. Thank you also to pay for the transportation cost. The fruits are important future generations and for the environment.
