Dec. 13 2014 - food stocks at WFP (World Food Program) warehouse in Juba, capital city of South-Sudan. More than 60 trucks, with a loading capacity of 45 metric tons each, pass every day through the gates of the facility in Juba. The extremely poor reliability of the roads network is raising demands for founds and different ways to deliver the supplies. Fluvial transportation is currently implemented but it is high in risks; air-drops and air-delivery are the only options where food has to be delivered to frontline areas but they are seven time more expensive than trucks. Needs are high and time is short, food stocks have to be pre-positioned during the next four months. The ongoing civil war between SPLA-Juba, the army loyal to President Salva Kiir and SPLA-IO, the army of former deputy Riek Machar, is generating more than 1,9 million displaced people out of a population of 8 million; 1,4 million are internally displaced. UNHR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) considers the South-Sudanese humanitarian crisis one of the worst on planet at present.
