Where Needed Most Water Refugees and IDPs

South Sudan Crisis

The ceasefire in South Sudan failed before it ever got started, and people are suffering badly. Tens of thousands are displaced into about 30 refugee camps located in extremely inhospitable areas of Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda. The makeshift camps lack basic access to clean water and food supplies are low. Even if a ceasefire happened tomorrow, a food crisis would still emerge in a couple of months because farmers can’t get back to their fields. Humanitarian aid can’t keep up with the growing demand.

A BGR partner team conducted an assessment trip in an area that has been overlooked, and up to $100,000 has been approved for the relief effort, which will focus primarily on water. About 5% of the kids are unaccompanied minors just trying to find a safe place.
