People impacted by violence in Agok and Aneet: Situation Report No. 1

• An estimated 100,000 people have been affected, including 70,000 displaced, by fighting in the Abyei Administrative Area since intercommunal clashes broke out on 10 February 2022, with an escalation of incidents in March.

• Over 40,000 people have been displaced to South Sudan’s Warrap and Northern Bahr el Ghazal states. Most of the displaced are stranded in the open. Others are staying with host communities.

• The fighting led to the suspension of humanitarian operations in the affected areas and the relocation of aid workers. Activities have since resumed but are being coordinated from central Abyei.

• The humanitarian situation of affected population is dire. People are in urgent need of protection, food and nutrition, shelter, non-food items, health, WASH and education services.

• The Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator has allocated US$10 million to address critical gaps.
