Description and results


As of March 2018, an estimated 7 million people across South Sudan are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection across the country as a result of armed conflict, food insecurity, malnutrition, economic decline, and disease. Approximately 1.9 million people are internally displaced within South Sudan and over 2.4 million South Sudanese have sought protection in neighbouring countries. An estimated 5.1 million people are currently severely food insecure, with malnutrition rates over emergency thresholds. Outbreaks of communicable diseases 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, nutrition and protection services for up to 125,916 conflict-affected people in Upper Nile state. Project activities include: (1) rehabilitate the key water and sanitation facilities in 10 targeted schools and 4 health clinics and forming four community water management committees; (2) implementing Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition and screening 13,725 children and 5,779 pregnant and lactating women, and (3) reaching 10,000 women, men, boys and girls with gender-based violence service and referral information.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to safe drinking water, safe sanitation and hygiene practices among conflict affected populations; (2) increased access to life saving nutrition treatment and prevention services for children under five and pregnant and lactating women; and (3) increased access to protection services for conflict affected populations. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
