ABOUT THE MISSION

SI has started to implement its humanitarian response in South Sudan in 2006. Its long lasting presence has contributed to build a wealth of experience in WASH and FSL assessments, implementation and accountability to beneficiaries. In December 2013, SI became a key WASH actor for IDPs in the PoC of Malakal and implemented construction and maintenance of sanitation facilities, waste management and hygiene promotion activities. Following the displacement from Wau Shilluk, SI is also present in Aburoc since 2017 and was one of the very first actors on the ground to implement WaSH activities, and is currently the WaSH site focal point for the cluster.

SI has also implemented food security activities in South Sudan; piloting large-scale unconditional cash transfers amongst IDPs and host communities in Upper Nile State, as well as seeds distribution in Malakal.

In 2017, SI opened a base in Raja, Western Bahr el Ghazal, where SI has been implementing WASH in Health as well as Food Security and Livelihoods programmes in partnership with ALIMA, notably under OFDA, GIZ and SSHF grants. Thanks to these interventions, SI has managed to reach some of the remote locations in Raja such as Timsaha and Boro Medina, giving a good experience in dealing with the different actors in the area.

Furthermore, since October 2018, SI is implementing a WaSH response for Ebola and Cholera preparedness in Nimule and Juba, especially through IPC WASH and WaSH in Health interventions.

Finally, SI is implementing RRM programs since 2012 in many different settings with various interventions, allowing SI to develop deep knowledge and understanding of the different challenges South Sudan is facing.

The main axis of SI’s country strategy are as follows:

  • Preparedness and response to acute multisectoral needs, through an integrated approach
  • Improvement of the basic services in light of the movements of population and creation of “livelihood” opportunities

The overall budget of the South Sudan mission is circa 2 million USD.

LIVING CONDITIONS AND SECURITY:

General environement and living conditions

In Raja: SI base opened in 2017 in Raja. SI has it own compound but might host another NGO for programmatic purposes (Nonviolence peaceforce – NP, protection partner for the planned ECHO consortium). The security is calm, but Raja is a very remoted area (1 flight per week to Wau or 8 hours by road to Wau) and there are not many NGO with a permanent presence in Raja (only ALIMA).

In Raja, SI premises in Raja is a large compound (with a vegetable garden). One main building includes the accommodation and living areas (bedrooms for expats and delocalised staff, kitchen, bathroom) and the office rooms and stock rooms. As mentioned above, the social life in Raja is pretty poor: there is only ALIMA with a full presence in town. However, some NGO staff from other NGO/agencies are coming quite often to Raja (FAO, WFP, etc.) and SI will host NP expats (2-3) for the implementation of ECHO project (depending on funding).

SECURITY

There is an internal curfew from 9/10 PM (depending on the zones) till 7:00 AM in Juba and from 6:00 PM till 6:00 AM in the field for the time being.

In Juba: Beside the current security risks associated to the negotiation of the peace agreement, the main security risk in Juba is robbery and police checks at night. It is possible to walk in the streets during the day (2 people minimum), providing avoiding some places in town. There’s a night driver for movements out of office hours.

In Raja: The security situation remains calm in all Raja county. However, with the on-going negotiations and with the potential signature of the peace agreement, the tensions might raise again and the security remains very volatile (armed groups are still present in Raja county).

Security rules might be revised according to the new situation.
