March 2019 – An estimated 7.1 million people across South Sudan are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection across the country as a result of armed conflict, food insecurity, malnutrition, economic decline and disease. Approximately 1.9 million people are internally displaced within South Sudan and almost 2.3 million South Sudanese have sought protection in neighbouring countries. An estimated 6.2 million people are currently severely food insecure, with malnutrition rates over emergency thresholds. Outbreaks of communicable diseases have strained an already overwhelmed health system. Humanitarian access remains restricted in many areas and large numbers of people are accessible only by air drops. With GAC’s support, Concern Worldwide is providing emergency water, sanitation, hygiene and nutrition assistance for up to 113,366 displaced and conflict-affected people in Unity and Central Equatoria states of South Sudan. Project activities include: (1) rehabilitating and operating 10 boreholes equipped with hand pumps in Rubkona and Guit counties; (2) constructing 32 communal latrines, and 100 handwashing stations in the Bentiu Protection of Civilian site; and (3) delivering outpatient therapeutic programs, targeted supplementary feeding programs and infant and young child feeding services for 14,596 children and 3,574 pregnant and lactating women across all project sites.

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to safe drinking water, safe sanitation and hygiene practices among conflict affected populations; and (2) increased access to life saving nutrition treatment and prevention services for children under five, and pregnant and lactating women. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
