Summary

South Sudan is currently facing the worst refugee crisis in Africa and the third worst in the world, with over 2 million displaced. Add to this the countries food insecurity, with 40% of the population in urgent need of food aid, the situation is critical. We're responding in a variety of ways, including: Providing emergency food aid and agriculture support for 100 refugee families and developing a Community Based Rehabilitation programme for refugees with disabilities, currently an unmet need.

Challenge

Since a new wave of violence has broken out across South Sudan in 2017, thousands have fled their homes, leaving their possessions behind and finding refugee in temporary camps or refugee settlements where many are struggling to meet their most basic needs like nutrition. The situation for refugees and those displaced is critical, particularly for the most vulnerable individuals (often those with disabilities) who aren't receiving the level or urgent care they desperately need.

Solution

1: Initiating an emergency food project for 600 displaced individuals (100 households). This includes providing emergency food rations as well as farming tools and seeds so families can start producing their own food sustainably. 2: Refugees with disabilities are amongst the most vulnerable. There is currently no disability care available in one camp of 144,000+ people. We're starting a Community Based Rehabilitation team to tackle this urgent need.

Long-Term Impact

Emergency food aid will help prevent families from the threat of malnutrition and subsequent illnesses and life-threatening challenges. Providing them with the farming tools to produce their own food will ensure they can become more self-sufficient long after this project finishes. Related to those with disabilities...Community Based Rehabilitation is a proven method for improving the well being of persons with disability and we are confident the impact will last for many years.
