The situation in South Sudan is considered one of the most serious and dreadful long-term humanitarian crises in the world. The region has been negatively affected by two civil wars since Sudanese independence: from 1955 to 1972, the Sudanese government fought the Anyanya rebel army during the First Sudanese Civil War, followed by the Second Sudanese Civil War that lasted for over twenty years and is considered one of the longest civil war in the modern history.

As a result, the country suffered serious neglect, lack of infrastructural development and major destruction and displacement. More than 2.5 million people have been killed and millions more have become refugees both within and outside the country.

By 2015, People in Need provided assistance to almost 5,000 people in IDP sites in Mahad PS and Lologo. People in Need took responsibility for the overall-camp management and provision of WASH services. The regular activities within the program included water trucking to IDPs sites, construction and maintenance of WASH facilities, waste management, distribution of hygiene and cholera kits to the most vulnerable people as well as hygiene promotion and cholera awareness campaigns.
