Description and results

Description

As of March 2017, an estimated 7.5 million people across South Sudan are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection across the country as a result of armed conflict, inter-communal violence, economic crisis, disease outbreaks and climatic shocks. Approximately 1.85 million people are internally displaced within South Sudan and over 1.4 million South Sudanese have sought protection in neighbouring countries. The civil war, as well as erratic rainfall in some areas, have resulted in 4.6 million people projected to require food assistance, with malnutrition rates over emergency thresholds. Outbreaks of cholera, measles, and hepatitis E have strained an already overwhelmed health system. Humanitarian access remains restricted in many conflict areas and large numbers of people are accessible only by air drops. With GAC’s support, World Vision Canada is providing emergency water, sanitation, hygiene and nutrition services for up to 81,826 conflict-affected people in Upper Nile state. Project activities include: (1) constructing two new water points, rehabilitating one water treatment plant and forming two community water management committees; (2) constructing 140 sanitation facilities and training 15 hygiene promoters to conduct 16 hygiene awareness campaigns; and (3) implementing Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition to screen 9,194 children and 3,871 pregnant and lactating women.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to safe drinking water, safe sanitation and hygiene practices among conflict affected populations; and (2) increased access to life saving nutrition treatment and prevention services for children under five and pregnant and lactating women. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
