S. Sudan humanitarian group to hold its annual conference next week in the United States

Omaha, April 4, 2016 (SSNA) -- A South Sudan’s aid agency, the Relief Organization for South Sudan (ROSS) said that it will hold its 2016 humanitarian annual conference next week in the United States of America.

The announcement comes as the international community intensifies pressure on South Sudan’s rival leaders to implement the internationally-brokered pact.

The meeting, which the organizers said will be conducted under the theme “Calling All to Action in Support of those in Crisis and Peace in South Sudan,” will address issues relating to the ongoing peace deal implementation and urges the participants to contribute to the peace-building process, the South Sudan News Agency (SSNA) has learned.

Organizers told the SSNA that the conference will kick off on April 15 and will last through the 17th of April (Friday-Sunday) in Omaha, Nebraska, USA.

ROSS also says it has invited a diverse group of South Sudanese and that experts in peacebuilding, international relations, humanitarian, and non-profit organizations issues will also participate in the session.

The Relief Organization for South Sudan is a US-based not-for-profit humanitarian agency working in coordination with other aid groups to help South Sudanese who have been displaced by the civil war and in need of humanitarian assistance.

Fangak Community in UNMISS POCs welcomes the arrival of SPLA-IO in Juba

Re: Fangak Community in UNMISS POCs (Juba) welcomes the arrival of SPLA-IO security forces in Juba

March 31, 2016 (SSNA) -- Fangak Community in UNMISS POCs, Juba, welcomes the historic arrival of SPLA-IO to Juba. We would like to, first and foremost, congratulate the Chairman and Commander-In-Chief of SPLM/A-IO and First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan, Dr. Riek Machar Teny; for having committed himself, and the Movement, fully to the implementation of the Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan through letter and spirit.

We know you carry the dreams and aspirations for a peaceful and more united South Sudan on your shoulders. 

We would also like to commend the efforts exerted by the guarantors of the August peace deal by transporting the security forces to the would-be-capital of the TGONU. This is a critical step towards the successful implementation of the agreement aimed at ending the ongoing protracted conflict, which has claimed tens of thousands lives and displaced missions from their homes to refugee and UNMISS camps.

We urge the international community to continue supporting all the provisions of the peace agreement and stand by those principles stipulated in ARCISS. The international community and the region need to be tough on the recalcitrant party.

Finally, we salute the officers, NCOs and file of the SPLA-IO for their selfless sacrifices and invaluable contribution to the realization of peace in South Sudan. Your coming to Juba signifies security for the residents of Juba in particular, and South Sudan in general. 

VIVA SPLA-IO!
VIVA Dr. Riek Machar Teny!

Signed by: Fangak Community in UNMISS POCs (Juba)
