Highlights:

  • Malnutrition rates in Yusuf Batil refugee camp in Upper Nile reduce, but are still over the global emergency threshold.
  • Access to remote locations is severely curtailed due to seasonal rains. Refugee partners are preparing to airdrop food to Yida in Unity State to ensure food assistance to disaster-affected people.
  • About 125,000 people have been affected by seasonal flooding in Jonglei State.

Situation overview

Aid workers continue to provide humanitarian assistance to about 170,000 Sudanese refugees in Unity and Upper Nile states. The high mortality and malnutrition rates have started to decrease as a result of the joint efforts of humanitarian actors, according to the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR. However, the situation remains precarious and the agency underlines a need to sustain and expand health, nutrition and hygiene campaigns and outreach, and secure food stocks until the end of the year. The logistic capacity to reach remote camps also needs to be ensured as well as preparedness for a possible surge in new arrivals at the end of the rainy season around November. Efforts to assess and respond to people affected by seasonal flooding across the country have also continued. Inter-agency assessment teams in Jonglei State reports some 125,000 people flood affected in need of some kind of humanitarian assistance.
