The human face of the South Sudan crisis
The conflict that broke out in South Sudan in December 2013 has left thousands dead and more than one million people internally displaced.
Additionally more than 300,000 people have fled their homes to neighboring countries, many of whom had to make the difficult crossing of the Nile River on their way to Uganda.
Vulnerable populations continue to flee ongoing fighting in South Sudan. There are around 63,000 people seeking shelter in eight UN bases across the country. In Juba, 80 percent of displaced people are women and children.
These photos give you insight in our humanitarian response, and a glimpse of what life is like for the people fleeing the violence.
Nearly five million people need food, water and support urgently.
Oxfam has reached more than 260,000 people affected by South Sudan's conflict with water and health and sanitation equipment. We’ve also started responding to the urgent needs of refugees and hosting communities in Uganda.
