South Sudan: CERF allocations overview

Dita Anggraeni

An estimated 6.1 million people are in need of protection and humanitarian assistance across South Sudan.

Since the beginning of the crisis in December 2013, CERF has supported the humanitarian operation in South Sudan with US$ 88,117,674 and provided critical funding to address the needs of more than 663,000 South Sudanese refugees who fled into neighbouring countries and host communities in Uganda ($29.9 million), Sudan ($29.3 million), Ethiopia ($32 million) and Kenya ($17.6 million).

In February 2016, in response to increased displacement, conflict and food insecurity in Western Equatoria, Western Bahr el Ghazal, Unity and Upper Nile states, CERF announced an allocation of $15 million to assist more than 250,000 people. A further $6 million was also allocated for the relocation of more than 76,000 refugees from the Yida refugee camp to a new camp in Pamir.
