responsibility to protect civilians
The intensification and spread of the conflict in Afghanistan is increasingly affecting civilians.
Nearly 4 million people remain in urgent need in South Sudan following the conflict that broke out in December 2013. Over 2 million people have fled their homes and and sought refuge within South Sudan or in neighboring countries. We have reached more than 480,000 people with life-saving essentials, but we urgently need to reach more.
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.
