Urgent attention needed to tackle worrying humanitarian situation in GPAA, South Sudan

Amidst the recent wave of violence in the Greater Pibor Administrative Area (GPAA) between rival communities, a worsening catastrophe is unfolding, putting women, children and the elderly on the brink of another humanitarian crisis.
Inter-communal conflict & violence that started before Christmas of 2022 and into most of January 2023 in Greater Pibor have left about 50,000 people displaced and in dire need of humanitarian assistance. The situation is worsening, noting that all those displaced have already had horrific two-years of floods coming back to back.
Recently, the Rapid Response Fund by the UN; was allocated to support immediate short-term gaps in the Pibor response, but NGOs are concerned that the conditions will continue to deteriorate as people require food and shelter. Despite the efforts by NGOs to provide critical basic needs, the population in Pibor lives in pessimism as the already dire situation may even worsen.
