Recent political events have dramatically changed the landscape of South Sudan, with more than 1.7 million people displaced, and access to media and information at a premium.

A series of studies on the Humanitarian Information Service (HIS) projects implemented by Internews in Central Equatoria, Upper Nile and Unity states from January 2014 to date, aims to identify how best to reach displaced populations with the information they need to make informed decisions about their lives. Wave 2 of these studies will additionally aim to assess impact and provide insight into future programmatic choices.

The research presented here is a brief summary of the Wave 1 assessment of the HIS project launched in August 2014 in UN House PoC 3. It is one of nine studies conducted in six different sites that have experienced massive displacement and conflict (Tong Ping, and PoC 1 and PoC 2 in UN House Juba; Mingkaman, Leer and Malakal), and in which Internews is implementing an HIS project.

Now they are called ‘internally displaced’, or IDPs, and many of them, literally, have to start their lives from scratch. And it is even more difficult for those families with children. In addition to financial hardship, many families must also cope with the psychological effects the war has had on their children. When the state fails in tackling these deeply emotional issues, volunteers come forward to help.
