Humanitarian Organizations - Central Equatoria

Central Equatoria is affected by both natural and manmade disasters. Floods and drought on meteorological patterns, affects law-lying areas of Juba and Terekeka County, contributing to poor harvest, food insecurity, malnutrition, disease outbreak, displacement and damaged infrastructure.

All counties in the state are vulnerable to insecurity as well as disease outbreaks.
Ethnic conflict caused by cattle raiding leads to displacement, loss of lives and property and hinders the delivery of economic and social services in the area. Insecurity in the State caused by internal political conflict, power sharing inequity and poor roads causes internal displacement, loss of lives, food insecurity, limited economic activities and inaccessibility. Disease outbreaks are causes by poor water and sanitation facilities, poor hygiene practices and limited access to health services.

According to a report of October 2015, there are about 52,120 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Central Equatoria. Ten percent of the IDP population are refugees in the UNMISS Protection of Civilians (POC) sites. A total of 27,950 live in Juba UN premises while others live in school premises like in Konyokonyo, Gumbo and Lologo. These IDPs are mainly from the Nuer, Dinka and few Equatorians.

The government agency that assists the IDPs, the Relief and Rehabilitation Committee (RRC) works with humanitarian organisations such as ADRA,  African Humanitarian Action (AHA), the Danish Refugee Council (DRC), Health link, HDC, INTERSOS and  IRC to address different humanitarian issues.

The humanitarian organisations undertake the following activities under the leadership of respective organisations:

  • IDP cluster system (the state protection) cluster- UNHCR
