Endless conflict put South Sudan at risk of famine

Severe food insecurity in South Sudan prevailed in January 2018 and is likely to persist into 2018, leaving over 1.1 million children acutely malnourished and in need of life-saving aid.
Conflict led to cancelation of planned humanitarian missions
A prolonged lack of humanitarian access, as a result of conflicts, continues to constrain operations and deteriorate the already severe food insecurity. Conflicts even led to the cancelation of two planned Integrated Rapid Response Mechanism missions (IRRMs) to Dolo and Raja in a western state of South Sudan. 7 million in South Sudan are in need of humanitarian assistance.
