August 22, 2016

Secretary of State John Kerry announced nearly $138 million in additional humanitarian assistance to help the South Sudanese people who have suffered through almost three years of brutal fighting. This additional funding brings the total U.S. humanitarian contribution to more than $1.7 billion since the conflict began in December 2013.

Today, I would like to highlight the worsening humanitarian crisis that the South Sudanese people face and how USAID has adapted its efforts to help them despite serious challenges. I will discuss our life-saving aid, as well as our long-term assistance to provide basic services, improve livelihoods, and mend the deep societal rifts in South Sudan. USAID’s mission is to partner to end extreme poverty and to promote resilient, democratic societies while advancing our security and prosperity—nowhere more so than in a country as desperately in need as South Sudan.

USAID Administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah Calls for Unfettered Humanitarian Access and the Demilitarization of Town Centers in South Sudan

We are gravely concerned by the serious escalation of the humanitarian crisis in Pibor County in South Sudan’s Jonglei State. As many as 120,000 civilians have fled their homes as a result of recent spikes in the ongoing battle between state and non-state armed actors and inter-communal clashes. These vulnerable populations are living outside of protected communities and without consistent access to food, safe drinking water, shelter, and health care.
