TORIT, 21 August [Gurtong] – According to officials, the just commenced joint initiative seeks to establish humanitarian needs of vulnerable civilians caused by the ongoing instability across the country. After the current rapid program intervention response is completed with its fact-findings researched, a joint intervention humanitarian response shall then follow, by the very agencies presently involved in the ongoing exercise.
Currently, CARE International is closely working in collaboration with Save the Children, Handicap International, War Child, AVSI, ZOA, among other organisations and in conjunction with the Relief & Rehabilitation Commission (RRC), the government and Civil Society organizations (CSOs).
Among the key involved CSOs are the South Sudan Development Agency (SSDA), Any Step With Blessing, Generation in Actions and Rural Development Initiative (RDI). The ongoing initiative primarily seeks to find imminent adequate appropriate interventions and this includes protection from gender based violence (GBV), health & nutrition, child protection food security/livelihoods, education and water, sanitation and hygiene.
