4 We need urgent collective efforts to help vulnerable people in South Sudan,” said Sara Nyanti.

5 The Humanitarian Coordinator expressed his gratitude, appreciation and respect to the humanitarian workers, communities, local authorities and first responders who provide life-saving assistance to thousands of people experiencing dire humanitarian need.

6 “I congratulate humanitarian workers and all those who risk their own lives to alleviate suffering and save the lives of others,” she added.

7 South Sudan continues to be the most violent context for aid workers, followed by Afghanistan and Syria.

8 Five aid workers have died in the line of duty in South Sudan since the beginning of 2022.

9 Across the country, aid workers, and mostly national aid workers, are affected by the impact of armed violence, bureaucratic impediments and targeted violence.

10 232 incidents related to humanitarian access restrictions were reported between January 1 and July 30 this year.

11 To date in 2022, the areas where humanitarian access restrictions were most experienced were Jonglei and Central Equatoria, accounting for 40% of all incidents reported since the beginning of the year.

12 People across the country, especially women and girls, face many protection risks, including conflict-related and gender-based sexual violence, armed violence, crime, kidnapping and property destruction.

13 These critical protection risks are compounded by deficiencies in the rule of law and access to justice.

14 “Impunity is a perpetuating factor and driver of conflict and insecurity.

15 There is an urgent need to bring the perpetrators to justice.

16 We need strengthened joint action, multidimensional dialogue and commitment to address this,” said Ms. Nyanti.

17 “All armed factions must immediately stop targeting civilians, humanitarian personnel and their property.

18 Impunity must end,” she added.

19 As the crisis in South Sudan continues, the humanitarian community and partners step up to respond every day by providing emergency food and livelihood support, health, nutrition and clean water, protection services and education.

21 “I would like to highlight and honor humanitarian workers, especially women, who work tirelessly on the front lines in the most difficult environments, trying to reach thousands of people affected by the crisis,” said Ms. Nyanti.

22 “On this day, we come together to pay tribute to all first responders who support people in need of humanitarian assistance, and we should do so every other day,” she added.
