UK International Development Secretary Justine Greening quote:
Speaking ahead of the High-level event in Geneva (16 June 2015) on the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan, International Development Secretary Justine Greening said:
“A year and a half into the conflict in South Sudan, further fighting has seen entire towns looted or burnt to the ground and more than two million people forced from their homes. We are deeply concerned about reports of serious abuses of human rights, including violence against girls and women.
“Millions now urgently need shelter, food and water supplies. We have already helped almost half a million people in South Sudan and we will continue to help lead the international response. But we cannot do this alone and it is clear that this crisis needs further support to stop it from escalating further.”
The British Embassy in Juba quote:
“This announcement is a strong sign that the UK remains committed to the people of South Sudan, and will continue to stand by them and support them in these difficult times”.
Detail on Geneva conference:
“A high-level conference in Geneva was organised on June 16th by the European Union and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) on the humanitarian situation in South Sudan. Its objective was to bring attention to the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the country and to mobilize funding for the response. Participants included member states and donors from over 40 countries, United Nations, Non-Governmental organizations, the private sector, the government and the opposition”.
South Sudan is facing a protracted humanitarian crisis and the resurgence of conflict in May 2015 is generating enormous needs. An estimated 50,000 people have been killed during this brutal civil war.
The UK committed £132 million to the humanitarian response in South Sudan in 2014. So far in 2015, the UK is providing an additional £40 million in emergency assistance for people affected by the ongoing conflict. This latest package includes:
o £19 million for the rapid delivery of emergency aid including shelter, water, medicine and protection services to meet lifesaving needs of the most vulnerable people;
o £16 million to help with the delivery of food aid in hard to reach locations and to ensure the response system is ready for the growing number of displaced people; and
o £6 million to scale up humanitarian logistical and transport resources on the ground.
Detail of humanitarian situation:
Humanitarian groups have evacuated South Sudan, communities have fled their homes into the swamps and vital humanitarian assistance has been suspended, leaving almost a million people dependent on food assistance for survival.
The onset of the rainy season this month brings the risk of malaria, cholera and acute water diarrhoea, and so this vital funding will provide over 4.5 million with food, access to water and health services as part of the UN’s wider Humanitarian Response Plan.
Women and girls have also been adversely affected, with up to 25,000 currently at risk of sexual violence. Recent fighting has been accompanied by grave violations against women and girls ranging from sexual violence, abductions, executions, detention and forced sexual slavery.
Further detail of UK support:
The UK has contributed more than £58 million to the refugee crisis, to organisations including UNICEF, the WFP and UNHCR to help South Sudanese refugees in Ethiopia, Uganda, Sudan and Kenya.
Since December 2013, in South Sudan UK support has:
o provided more than 100,000 people with food, and is providing more than 400,000 people with livelihoods support;
o provided more than 170,000 people with clean water, and improved hygiene and sanitation for 180,000;
o provided health support for more than 100,000 people; and
o provided more than 80,000 people with protection interventions. The UK addresses conflict related sexual violence through direct support to interventions addressing Gender Based Violence in conflict-affected states. It also ensures that all its partners understand and mitigate risks against vulnerable populations including women and girls.
