The situation in South Sudan has been rapidly deteriorating since last December. We are now seeing a real humanitarian crisis. Within the current, escalating conflict, we are seeing over one million displaced people and hundreds of thousands of refugees. Recently we learned that over three million people are facing severe food shortages.
Development and Peace has been supporting peace and reconciliation projects in the region for several years. They continue to follow the situation closely so that the best response to the most urgent needs of the population is met. This is a forgotten crisis, neglected by mainstream media and it is our responsibility to act to help the most vulnerable among the population by whatever means we have at our disposal.
We invite you to support the immediate efforts to assist the displaced persons and refugees in South Sudan.
