SOUTH SUDAN

INTERSOS INTERVENTION

INTERSOS started operating in the country in 2006 with protection programmes. Since then we have been working in the states of Upper Nile, Lakes, Unity, Jonglei, Western, Eastern and Central Equatoria, in response to the tragic humanitarian crisis that is still under way as a result of the internal conflict that began in 2013.

We bring help to thousands of displaced people fleeing the atrocities of war through interventions to protect against gender violence, child protection, primary and secondary education programmes for the reintegration of children into the school system coupled with the rehabilitation of the schools. We also distribute basic necessities, guaranteeing access to clean water.

CONTEXT

South Sudan, officially recognized as the Republic of South Sudan, is the youngest state in the world, born in 2011 after gaining independence from Sudan, following a long civil war, one of the longest and most devastating of the continent.

The end of the civil war, which initially promised to bring peace and better living conditions for the population, instead left the country in a state of extreme poverty, lacking infrastructure and basic services.

In December 2013, a fierce internal conflict broke out, and despite the signing of a peace agreement, it remains unresolved. The condition of the population has dramatically worsened: from the beginning of the conflict, about 2 million internally displaced persons and more than 4 million people are in need of humanitarian aid.  In the reception camps, the state of overcrowding and humanitarian conditions worsen by the day, affecting particularly women and children. The conflict was marked by indiscriminate killings of civilians and exposed thousands of women and children to all kinds of violence. The UN recently declared that about 18,000 minors were recruited as child soldiers.
