Millions of people in South Sudan are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance to prevent famine, the UN said, as donors prepare to meet in Oslo today to discuss the deteriorating crisis.
The UN said the situation is likely to deteriorate over the coming months.
- Currently, 6.9 million people are acutely food insecure
- 3.7 million people require urgent humanitarian assistance
- From June to August this number will increase to 7.3 million
- Populations face the risk of famine unless humanitarian aid is delivered
Delivering aid to the areas afflicted is complicated and time consuming due to the ongoing affects of the conflict and resulting displacement, and chronic lack of resources and infrastructure.
