The UK will give £60 million to aid agencies working in South Sudan, in an attempt to meet the the "dire" needs of the civilian population fleeing the deadly civil conflict in the newly formed state.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to flee their farms and homes to neighbouring regions and refugee camps, and the situation is expected to deteriorate in the coming months as the rainy season starts. South Sudan's chronic lack of roads and infrastructure will hamper relief efforts.
Development Minister Lynne Featherstone said:
"The situation is dire, getting worse, and 7.3 million people are going to be in need"
None of the money is going through the South Sudan government, instead it will go directly to aid agencies or the UN.
