Nearly 4 million people remain in urgent need in South Sudan following the conflict that broke out in December 2013. Over 1.9 million people have fled their homes and are displaced within the country and over 479,000 have fled to neighboring countries. We have reached more than 360,000 people with life saving essentials, but we urgently need to reach more.

 

For a Safer Tomorrow

In the DRC, increasing violence has forced people to flee from their homes, and led to the deaths of almost 1,500 people a day.
