Despite efforts by the main parties to the conflict to implement the revitalized peace agreement, the humanitarian situation remains critical in many parts of South Sudan, especially when it comes to access to basic goods and services. In addition, cattle raids, inter-ethnic violence and revenge violence have also provoked new population displacement in some areas.
The International Committee of the Red Cross tailors its humanitarian aid to respond to emergency needs and to build the resilience of local communities by supporting livelihoods and adequate basic services.
