In October 2012, People in Need decided to take action in one of the most dreadful humanitarian crises in Africa and opened a new mission in South Sudan.

After more than twenty years of the War of Independence, South Sudan is considered to be one of the least developed countries in the world. In 2014, South Sudan was declared the „most fragile“ state in the world. It has one of the highest poverty rates in Sub-Saharan Africa together with low life expectancy, low literacy and health care.  Government fails to find meaningful solutions and provision of basic services for its residents. Furthermore, South Sudan is still plagued by recurring natural disasters, tribal disputes and armed conflicts.

People in Need has been operational in South Sudan since the end of 2012 with reintegration / resilience focused programs in Central Equatoria and Northern Bahr el Ghazal. In the current conflict-related emergency, PIN is supporting IDP camps in Juba outside UNMISS compounds. The programs focus particularly on camp management and WASH services for IDPs. PIN has also been responding to the cholera epidemic since June 2014 in the IDP sites and in other highly populated areas in Juba.

People in Need´s intervention in Aweil West and North (Northern Bahr el Ghazal) focuses mainly on building the resilience of vulnerable groups of the population by stimulating extension services and encouraging food production through the provision of livelihoods inputs and support, and via the rehabilitation of community/livelihoods assets primarily among the poorest population.
