World: Global Emergency Overview Snapshot 16–23 April

Snapshot 16–23 April

Central African Republic: Renewed clashes between anti-balaka and Seleka fighters occurred in several locations in central, northern, and southwestern provinces. MISCA soldiers are being redeployed to cover areas previously secured by the Chadian contingent. A Christian religious leader was killed and four were abducted in two northern towns, while 30 Christian civilians were reportedly killed in a central town.

South Sudan: Approximately 600 people were reportedly killed across the country in fights between government and opposition forces and in inter-communal clashes. Opposition captured Bentiu, capital of oil-producing Unity state, from government forces. An IDP settlement site within a UN peacekeeping compound was attacked in Jonglei state. The number of IDPs in South Sudan rose to 916,900.

Syria: The Government announced that presidential elections will be held on 3 June. Heavy fighting is forcing renewed waves of displacement; some communities have been displaced multiple times. Access for humanitarian actors continues to be problematic due to the armed conflict and obstruction of activities by some parties, particularly in Deir-ez-Zor and Ar-Raqqa.

South Sudan: South Sudan: Situation Report #24, 23 April 2014

Highlights

  • Despite the heavy fighting that erupted in Bentiu (Upper Nile) on 15 April, WFP has been able to quickly provide a 15 day food ration to around 22,000 beneficiaries including wounded civilians at the IOM/IRC clinic and the new IDPs at the Rubkona UNMISS PoC 2 site.

  • Following media reports suggesting that during the attack in Bentiu, some civilians were killed inside WFP compound, WFP Security and UNMISS have visited the compound and have not found any sign or evidence of killing or shooting.

  • In Bor (Jonglei), despite the volatile security conditions, over the last week WFP and partners have distributed a total of 121 mt of assorted food commodities to 17,376 IDPs under General Food Distribution (GFD), Blanket Supplementary Feeding (BSFP) and Targeted Supplementary Feeding (TSFP).

  • Last week, the Government of Sudan granted its approval for the use of the Sudan corridor through Renk (Upper Nile). This will allow WFP to plan additional convoys for food deliveries.

  • Three mobile distribution teams, are currently on the ground in Pochalla (Jonglei), Mathiang and Pagak (Upper Nile).
    Registration is currently ongoing in Pochalla for an estimated 30,000 beneficiaries and has been completed in Mathiang for around 10,000 people. In Pagak, the team has completed the distribution of a 15 day food ration to about 10,000 people. WFP will deploy three additional roving teams to Motot, Lankien (Jonglei) and Ganyiel (Unity) in the coming days. Total estimated beneficiaries in these three location is 46,000 people.

  • Thus far, data collection for the emergency food security assessments (EFSA) has been completed in 28 out of 38 locations in Upper Nile, Jonglei and Unity states as well as Awerial county and UNMISS PoC sites in the other seven states. Preliminary results from the EFSA were presented to the Food Security and Livelihood Cluster partners on 17 April. All datasets will be considered for the upcoming IPC analysis starting on 24 April in Yei.
