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 fighting has forced more than 204,000 South Sudanese to flee into Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda, with many arriving nutritionally weak and in poor health, having come from areas of South Sudan experiencing severe food shortages. 3.7 million people within South Sudan are at risk of food insecurity, and 708,900 people have been displaced internally.

Amid the ongoing fighting and insecurity, UNHCR is on the ground working to assist those who have been forced to leave their homes. UNHCR is providing shelter and relief, food, medical supplies and protection to the displaced. UNHCR is also leading efforts to help protect the especially vulnerable, including women and children.

Please help support UNHCR’s work. Your donation will provide life-saving shelter and relief for the thousands who have been forced to flee their homes.
