In a brief statement, CMD Executive Director, Thomas Tut Gany commended the positive role that CMD and its partners have played in ensuring that the local population receives the necessary support needed to avert such a catastrophic situation.

Humanitarian situation in South Sudan
South Sudan plunged into violent conflict in 2013, creating a catastrophic situation that has severely affected health infrastructure and the economy.
In recent months, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs estimated that “more than 7 million people remain in need of humanitarian assistance throughout Southern Sudan due to the cumulative effects of years of conflict, chronic vulnerabilities and poor basic services.”
