South Sudanese National NGOs take a bold position at the IGAD/OCHA high- level pledging event on the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan

The Chair of the National NGO Steering Committee, of the South Sudan NGO forum, Mr Elijah Manyok, stated today that not only has the current war in South Sudan robbed the South Sudanese people of the human right of peace but has rendered over 6.4 million South Sudanese food insecure with nearly 2.5 million at risk of acute hunger and an estimated 2 million displaced from their homes.
