South Sudan

DRC has been present in South Sudan since 2005, implementing projects in Upper Nile, Unity, Jonglei, Western Bahr el Ghazal and Eastern Equatoria states. South Sudan represents the largest refugee crisis in Africa, with over 2.3 million refugees and asylum seekers hosted in Uganda, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya and, to a lesser extent, DR Congo. South Sudan faces high levels of internal displacement, with 2.2 million internally displaced persons as of 30 September 2022.

Why we are there

Protection is at the core of DRC’s work. In the midst of crisis, it is important for an organization like DRC to support people who have lost almost everything while protecting themselves from violence, heavy rains, droughts, human rights abuses, exploitation and neglect.

DRC is a leader in Camp Coordination & Camp Management – coordinating partner agencies to ensure that everyone has the basic services required for a safe and dignified life.

DRC works with communities to address the root causes of displacement, such as climate change and conflict.

What we do

DRC’s mobile response teams work in the hardest-to-reach areas to provide lifesaving support and emergency supplies, with a focus on the most vulnerable.

DRC works to make communities safer by promoting peace and clearing landmines and unexploded ordinances.

Part of this work includes helping people identify risks and engaging community members and leaders to implement conflict-sensitive governance.

DRC is the social cohesion lead for the Complementary Action for Resilience Building (CARB) consortium.
