South Sudan Refugee Crisis

Campaign Ends Jan. 4, 2019

Since December 2013, brutal conflict in South Sudan has claimed thousands of lives and driven nearly four million people from their homes.

While many remain displaced inside the country, more than two million have fled to neighbouring countries in a desperate bid to reach safety.

The situation in South Sudan and neighbouring countries has quickly escalated into a full-blown humanitarian emergency. Although we are doing all we can to provide relief and life-saving shelter with limited resources, displacement in the region is expected to rise until a political solution is found.

“I need blankets. It is cold at night and I don’t want my children to get sick.” Rebecca Barnaba, 23, mother at Doro camp

5.5 million people across the country are in urgent need of food and humanitarian assistance. UNHCR has the reach and expertise to tackle this crisis at scale - but we’re lacking 90% of the required funding. We need your help now..
