South Sudan: Response scale-up for highly food insecure areas Situation Report No. 7

More than one million dollars’ worth of humanitarian supplies and assets were looted and destroyed during armed attacks in May, impacting the delivery of assistance to an estimated 131,000 people in the Greater Pibor Administrative Area (GPAA). In May, FSL Cluster partners reached 224,000 people in GPAA with food assistance. This represents 49 per cent of the people targeted. It is part of a double distribution for May and June and will be completed in June. Sub-national violence led to the suspension of food distributions in Gumuruk in early May. The FSL Cluster reached 107,000 households (HH) in the six priority 1 counties with dry season livelihood support in May. This represents 63 per cent of the people targeted. Under the livestock support programme, around 1.75 million animals were vaccinated (66 per cent of target), and 416,000 animals were treated against infectious diseases (54 per cent of target).
