Contesto

Aweil East County in NBeG (Northern Bahr el Ghazal State) is situated at the contentious border area between Sudan and South Sudan. NBeG has a population size of 353,351 people. It received the highest returnees and is expecting about 20,000 (17.2% of the all returnees coming to South Sudan). Aweil East is characterized by high malnutrition rates with 28.7% and 6% Global Acute Malnutrition and Severe Acute Malnutrition respectively. Chronic underproduction in agriculture in NBeG State contributes to widespread food insecurity. Households are not able to produce at a level that sustains their household needs. Opportunities for additional income generation are limited. The current status of water, sani-tation, and hygiene in NBeG are below satisfactory levels. 97.2% of the population practices open defecation and do not have sanitation facilities. Only 30% of the population mentioned washing their hands three or more times a day. ACF`s integrated nutrition, FSL & WASH activities will be oriented towards tackling immediate & underlying causes of malnutrition.
