ABOUT US

SOLIDARITES INTERNATIONAL (SI) is an international humanitarian aid association which, since more than 40 years, has been providing assistance to populations affected by armed conflicts and natural disasters by meeting their basic needs for food, water and shelter. 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. Present in some twenty countries, the SI teams – 3000 people in total, made up of expatriates, national staff, permanent staff at HQ, and a few volunteers - intervene with professionalism and commitment while respecting cultural norms.

ABOUT THE MISSION

SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL (SI) has been operating in South Sudan since 2006, conducting activities in emergency and post emergency context, particularly in rural and semi-urban areas, including IDP camp settings. Its expertise in running emergency WaSH intervention is highly acknowledged by all WaSH actors and donors. Furthermore, SI is implementing longer term WASH and FSL activities in multiple locations.
Since the onset of the crisis in 2013, hundreds of thousands of people have been fleeing the conflict in South Sudan and an estimated 8.4 million are in need of humanitarian assistance as of 2023. Severity of food insecurity continues to grow due to compounding shocks amplified by intensified sub-national violence, three consecutive years of widespread flooding, localized dry spells, and an ongoing protracted macro-economic crisis with heightened poverty and vulnerability (more than 80% of the population is reportedly below the poverty line).
In April 2023, fighting broke out in Khartoum, Sudan, spreading to other parts of the country in the following days and weeks, and resulting in mass displacement from Sudan to Egypt, Chad, Ethiopia, Libya, the Central African Republic, and South Sudan. By end of 2023, more than 480 000 people had reportedly displaced to South Sudan, the vast majority of entering through the Joda/ Wunthow border point in Renk County, Upper Nile State, the northernmost border crossing in South Sudan. Of those crossing, 82% were South Sudanese returnees, many of whom fled war in then-southern Sudan prior the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in 2005, or war in South Sudan between 2013 and 2018.
Following the influx of displaced people to Upper Nile and Unity States, Solidarités International mobilized an emergency response. The two SI emergency teams - responding to natural disasters, epidemics, and population displacement - were deployed early on to participate in the coordination and organization of the response. In Upper Nile, SI already had an office in Malakal (where one of the deployable team is based) and a field-office in Kodok. Two additional field offices in Renk and Melut have been set-up to support the ongoing response to the Sudan Crisis and to ensure constant monitoring and rapid access to affected communities. SI's long term presence in Upper Nile enables the organization to ensure proper coordination with other key players on the ground in order to provide a high-quality response and avoid duplication of efforts.
The second national emergency team usually based in Juba, has been deployed to Unity State since May 4th to conduct Rapid Needs Assessment and to lead the emergency response in Rotriak and Pariang displacement sites.
SI is currently working to scale-up its response in both Upper Nile and Unity by recruiting additional team members to reinforce its capacities over the coming months.
The activities implemented are in the sectors of WASH, FSL, Shelter, RRM and Emergency Preparedness Response.
In 2023, the mission’s estimated budget is around USD 5+ million, and there are 100+ employees.
