With the support of the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA/ USAID), the Rapid Response Fund (RRF) provides sub-grants to international and national non-governmental organizations (I/NNGOs) to rapidly respond to natural and man-made disasters in South Sudan, and Abyei Administrative Area. The RRF aims to support the needs of the most vulnerable internally displaced persons (IDPs), host communities, and returnees by providing a quick and flexible funding mechanism for I/NNGOs to deliver effective and needsbased humanitarian aid.
The RRF funds partners in eight different sectors:
Agriculture and Food Security (FSL);
Logistics/Non-Food Items (NFI);
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH);
Shelter/Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM); and
Humanitarian Coordination and Information Management.
During the reporting period, RRF funded six implementing partners to provide life-saving services to IDPs, host community members and returnees throughout South Sudan.
