UN Launches $2.7 Billion Appeal For South Sudan Refugee Crisis

The United Nations pleaded for $2.7 billion to support refugees from South Sudan, saying the funding shortage for the biggest refugee crisis in Africa left so many of them with no food, medicine and water.

The civil war has so far forced approximately over two million South Sudanese to flee to neighbouring countries such as DR Congo, Uganda, Sudan, Kenya and Ethiopia for the last five years now.

Although the peace treaty was signed by the rebel group and the government in September 2018, the refugees could not return safely and the countries where they flee seeking for refuge also need international help urgently, according to UNHCR.

The statement says, South Sudan schools lack teachers, educational materials and classrooms which left half of the refugee children out of school.

Due to lack of enough funds, the water supply in Sudan is now limited to only 5 litres a single day, while in Ethiopia the food share has been reduced.

Health centres lack enough medications, nurses and doctors.
