Govt increases funding for war-hit refugees from South Sudan | BreakingNews.ie.

The Government is to provide €2m in funding to aid agencies responding to the worsening crisis in South Sudan.
The money will be used to provide clean water and to tackle hunger among the vulnerable communities in the area and in refugee camps across the border, in Ethiopia.
Last week marked the first anniversary of the civil war in South Sudan, which saw widespread violence force almost two million people to flee their homes.
Today’s announcement brings Ireland’s total funding to help those affected by the crisis to more than €10.5m in 2014.
