WFP launched an operation to provide food assistance to tens of thousands of people uprooted by violence in Pibor County of Jonglei State in South Sudan. The operation is taking place in areas where the humanitarian community has been able to gain access into Pibor County, with distributions in Dorein and Pibor Town. These areas are difficult to reach, requiring the use of helicopters to airlift the food commodities.
