Particularly committed to the fight against diseases linked to unsafe water, the leading cause of death in the world, SI's interventions provide expertise in the field of access to Drinking Water, sanitation and Hygiene Promotion, but also in the essential area of Food Security and livelihoods.

    About the mission

    SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL (SI) has been responding to humanitarian needs in South Sudan for over 16 years. In 2023, we will continue working alongside communities in some of the hardest to reach areas. SI provides clean water, sanitation, and other lifesaving activities, while supporting vulnerable communities to strengthen their resilience to shocks, rebuild their livelihoods, and regain a sense of normality in some of the hardest of circumstances.

    South Sudan is also witnessing further displacements within the country due to the sub-national and localized violence, which has increased since the beginning of 2022. The security situation is expected to deteriorate further as the transitional period following the signing of Revitalized Peace Process is nearing its end in 2023.

    Following the clashes in Sudan and the arrival of displaced Sudanese and South Sudanese returnees, SI is developing a rapid Emergency response in the north of South Sudan, and notable in the state of Unity, with the opening of a new base of intervention.

    In 2023, the mission’s estimated budget is around USD 3,5+ millions, and there are 50+ employees.
