Annual Report 2018
UNICEF South Sudan
In South Sudan, 2018 ended with a sense of cautious optimism following the signing of a peace agreement by the main parties to the five-year long conflict. Areas that were previously inaccessible began to open up to humanitarians and there was hope that 2019 could be defined by return and reconciliation.
Much of the rest of the year continued to be marked by emergency response as UNICEF and our partners worked to address the urgent humanitarian needs of those affected by the fighting. Together we provided assistance to 2.7 million people, of whom 1.6 million were children.
