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.

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

    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.
