Assisting People Displaced by Violence in South Sudan04 April 2014
The Logistics Cluster airlifts have helped aid agencies reach and assist hundreds of thousands of people in the states worst affected by conflict since December 2013 including Jonglei, Unity and Upper Nile. We have also served areas in Lakes State where tens of thousands of displaced people have sought shelter. The airlifts have focused on locations where high numbers of people have been displaced by violence. Many of those assisted have been displaced several times, and rely on aid agencies for food, shelter, clean water and other life-saving services. With a lack of food and sanitation; the risk of malnutrition and disease outbreaks is high.
