Although a peace agreement was signed in August, it’s done nothing to stem the fighting. In fact, fighting has spread to new areas with reports of people being raped and killed, and of homes and crops being destroyed and damaged by fighting. Nearly 5 years after South Sudan gained independence, fighting continues. It's a conflict characterized by alarming levels of sexual violence and the targeting of children. And while humanitarians cannot solve the political problems, they can deliver life-saving aid, but only if it's safe enough to do so, and only if the resources exist. With just 6% of the UN's humanitarian plan funded, aid projects are shutting down. Many others can't even launch.
Please share this and encourage governments to fully fund the humanitarian response in South Sudan, before it's too late.
