Spotlight on South Sudan - What NGOs Should Know

On December 14, I sat down with Lindsay Hamsik, the ‎policy and advocacy advisor at South Sudan NGO Forum - an independent coordinating body of approximately 160 national and 142 international NGOs that serves and facilitates the work of its members to address the humanitarian and development needs in South Sudan - to discuss the crisis currently affecting South Sudan and the challenges NGOs face when providing assistance there. 

1. Can you please give a brief overview of the crisis currently affecting South Sudan?

2. What challenges do NGOs face when providing humanitarian assistance in South Sudan?
