U.S. Gives South Sudan $95 Million to Alleviate Humanitarian Crisis

The United States has disbursed more than $95 million to South Sudan to help humanitarian efforts in the country.

U.S. Department of State Spokesperson Ned Price says the funding will provide critical protection, economic opportunity, shelter, essential healthcare, emergency food assistance, safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene services to some of the nearly four million South Sudanese refugees and internally displaced people in South Sudan.

It also supports refugees and host communities in Uganda, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
