The chaos of life on the run: South Sudan

Life on the run

For many in South Sudan the last two years have been a life on the run. Since the beginning of the conflict in December 2013, nearly two million people have been displaced within South Sudan and across neighboring countries.

Though a peace agreement has been signed, the humanitarian consequences remain extremely concerning. Because of mass displacement, entire communities are now in search of food and health care and exposed to the dangers of warfare and sexual assault. Many people have been separated from their loved ones and millions still desperately hope to return to their homes.

Together with the ICRC, the Red Cross Movement is working to address the most pressing humanitarian needs across the country.

Through a series of stories, videos and photos, the ICRC illustrates the challenges of a chaotic and dangerous life for those on the run in South Sudan.
