Through support from the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA/USAID), the Rapid Response Fund (RRF) provides sub-grants to international and national nongovernmental organizations (I/NNGOs) to rapidly respond to natural and man-made disasters in all ten states of 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 needs-based humanitarian aid. The RRF funds partners in eight different sectors (see pie chart on the left).
During the reporting period, RRF funded 11 implementing partners to provide lifesaving services to IDPs, host community members and returnees throughout South Sudan.
One of the implementing partners supported during the reporting period is a national NGO known as South Sudan Development Agency (SSUDA). It provided emergency life-saving non-food items to most vulnerable IDPs and host communities in Longochuk, Baliet and Manyo counties in Upper Nile State.
