In April food assistance was provided to over 594,000 conflict affected beneficiaries and 480,000 beneficiaries with recovery based activities in the non-conflict states. 3 tons of crop seeds were airdropped in Mayendit county, Unity State on 30 May 2014. This will assist 250 households and has the capacity to produce over 200 tons of produce including maize, sorghum, cowpea, and sesame.

Partners’ distribution of emergency livelihood kits is moving full speed ahead with large amounts of inputs on the road and scheduled by air to reach beneficiaries in the coming weeks.

Road transportation for distribution remains a challenge with rainy season quickly proceeding. Inter-clan fighting in Rumbek North Constrained access for partners to implement their activities.
