Context :

Terre des hommes Foundation (Tdh) is the leading Swiss child relief organization, based in Lausanne (Switzerland). Every year our projects support more than 2 million children (3 million in 2016) and their families in over 35 countries. We are part of the Terre des hommes International Federation (TDHIF), with 9 other sister organizations in Switzerland, Europe and Canada.

Tdh has been working in South Sudan since the beginning of 2013. In 2016, following the clashes that took place in the Equatoria Region, Yei River State (Former Central Equatoria State) was identified as zone of major humanitarian concern. At the beginning of 2017, Tdh launched an integrated program in Yei town to improve WASH access through large scale borehole rehabilitation, hygiene promotion and distribution of NFI kits, and support livelihoods through the distribution of vegetable seeds, farming tools and massive cash for work activities. Local partners South Sudan Health Association (SSUHA), the Crop Training Centre in Yei (CTC) and the Mugwo Development Organization (MDO) are involved in the program implementation.

In May 2017, the intervention is being expanded to Lainya county, where Tdh covered the water and sanitation needs, as well as a reinforcement of the health system through the intervention in nutrition, mother and child care with mobile clinic in a highly volatile area. Further on, in September 2017, Tdh launched a school feeding program in Yei in all of the city schools to prevent the increase of malnutrition (15,7% in June 2017) and tackle the high rate of school drop-offs due to the lack of food. Additional activities, including distributions of seeds and tools for gardening and cereal production, as well as emergency kits distributions for conflict affected populations, were also carried out to foster farming activities and livelihoods. A new project will be launched at the end of 2018 following a survey carried out by Tdh highlighting that over 50% of the population is food insecure – activities will include Cash for work scheme, livestock restocking and direct support to farming.

Additionaly Tdh is carrying a full-fledged child protection and psychosocial support project in Yei, aiming at supporting the most vulnerable children affected by the conflict, including unaccompanied children, with case management, social services, direct and targeted support and capacity building of local child protection actors. Finally, is currently engaged in a Wash in Schools project with rehabilitation of Wash facilities in 18 schools along with hygiene practices improvement and school gardening activities.

The security situation in Yei remains concerning and attacks against the civilian population in the rural area happen regularly – leading to displacements of populations and access issues for aid workers.
