Since December, deadly clashes in South Sudan have forced thousands to flee their homes. A state of emergency has been declared in South Sudan’s Unity and Jonglei states and the conflict has now spread to seven states across the country. The world’s newest nation is now one of the world’s greatest humanitarian crises.
The fighting has forced nearly 2 million from their homes, internally displaced 1.4 million people and forced more than 636,110 South Sudanese to flee into Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda. Many are arriving malnourished and in poor health, having come from areas of South Sudan experiencing critical food shortages.
3.7 million people within South Sudan are at risk of food insecurity and the conflict is preventing safe access for humanitarian assistance by road.
Amid the ongoing fighting and insecurity, UNHCR is doing everything we can to assist those who have been forced to leave their homes by providing emergency relief, shelter, medical supplies,health clinics, and protection.
UNHCR is also leading efforts to help protect the especially vulnerable, including women and children.
