DFID has provided over £70 million to the South Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SSHF) over the last 3 years from the total DFID bilateral funding listed in the table below. In 2016, the SSHF provided over £70 million to reach over 1.2m people with WASH, nutrition, health, and other lifesaving activities. Approximately £8 million of this funding was delivered through local and national NGOs.
In addition to our bilateral funding, targeted support is being provided through DFID’s centrally managed Disaster Emergency Preparedness Programme to deliver 3 projects supporting national and local NGOs in South Sudan to engage more effectively in humanitarian preparedness and response.
