World Donors Must Unite Behind S. Sudan, Provide Support As Country Rebuilds

Huffington Post: South Sudan: We Must Not Miss This Opportunity to Save Lives
Toby Lanzer, U.N. assistant secretary-general in Juba, South Sudan as deputy special representative and development and humanitarian coordinator

“…An end to the conflict [in South Sudan] would allow people to move around in greater safety, to sow in what remains of the planting season, and to take better care of themselves in the coming months. It would also allow for U.N. and humanitarian agencies to better deliver relief to people most in need wherever they are. The parties must live up to their promises, and the international community must hold them to those promises. At the same time, the world’s donors must unite behind the people of South Sudan, and provide the support they so desperately need to survive and eventually rebuild their lives and, ultimately, their nation. It is not too late to save this generation of South Sudanese” (5/20).
