Ten months since the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan was signed, the humanitarian situation remains dire in South Sudan. Food insecurity has reached unprecedented levels despite some improvements in terms of access. Our medical teams continue to receive a large number of patients with gunshot wounds in the hospitals we support.

The ICRC remains committed to providing the most suitable support possible to meet the needs of the population. Our response includes the delivery of emergency relief items as well as a longer-term approach through the distribution of seeds, farm tools and school material. These activities only represent a small percentage of the assistance the ICRC provides daily to thousands of people in need in South Sudan.

Highlights of our work in South Sudan between January and June 2019
