Country: South Sudan
Organization: Solidarités International
Closing date: 28 May 2021

Desired start date: 01/07/2021**
Duration of the mission:** 6 months (renewable)
Location: Aburoch, Upper-Nile, South Sudan

ABOUT THE MISSION

SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL operates in South Sudan since 2006.

SI works at the response to urgent needs in water supply, hygiene and sanitation, food security and shelter as well as the prevention and response to outbreaks.

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, Massive displacements have exacerbated humanitarian needs that were already high.

After years of crisis, inhabitants of Fashoda county have lost most of their sources of income, putting them in a precarious and vulnerable situation. The poor nutritional and food security situation has contributed to increased mortality rates, in large part due to the limited levels of WASH services and exposure to high risks of water borne diseases, and the situation is expected to worsen in the coming months. However, despite urgent humanitarian needs, there is very limited humanitarian assistance being provided in the area.

SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL became a key WASH actor for IDPs in the Protection of Civilian (PoC) IDP Camp of Malakal and implemented construction and maintenance of sanitation facilities, waste management and hygiene promotion activities.

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 response to the displacement from Wau Shilluk, SI started a program in Aburoc in 2017 where it was one of the very first actors on the ground to implement WaSH activities, and Solidarités International is the WaSH focal point for the cluster on the site.

General objective:
