At March 2019, the program includes:

  • An emergency component with:
    • Protection program in Juba PoC and Urban juba camps, psychosocial support and targeted assistance to persons with specific needs
    • A Mental Health and Inclusive humanitarian response programme in Yei, Torit and Yambio county

  • A long-term component with:
    • A Victim Assistance project based in Yei county including rehabilitation activitiesThe Flying Team is a Rapid Mobile Emergency Health, MHPSS and Inclusion Response to conflict affected areas in South Sudan
    • The general objective is to reduce vulnerability of people at risk of exclusion by improving access to essential services via a rapid mobile service delivery and support to humanitarian actors and community structures in conflict-affected areas

The Flying Team Project addresses the urgent need for rapid emergency mobile functional and physical rehabilitation and psychosocial support needs in conflict-affected states, particularly in areas with acute needs due to new shocks. The action targets the most vulnerable persons at risk of exclusion (including people with disabilities, people with injuries and chronic illnesses, people with psychosocial distress, children, female heads of households, older persons). By identifying specific vulnerabilities and providing targeted assistance to these vulnerable groups by deploying a team of specialists (physiotherapist, occupational therapist, psychologist and Inclusion officer) providing rehabilitation, and psychosocial support to the conflict-affected locations, the action will reduce vulnerability and will mitigate the impact of the conflict by facilitating access to essential services, improving functional capacities and independence, strengthening positive coping mechanisms and capacity building and training partners in different locations.

The team is deployed to different locations around South Sudan for varying lengths of deployment to conduct direct service implementation coupled with awareness raising, capacity building and on the job support to other service providers.

Juba is the capital of South Sudan; accessible by commercial flights and by road. Road movement is generally unadvisable, due to general security situation and poor road conditions. Internal flights operated by UNHAS connect Juba with major cities and key sites across the country for development and humanitarian activities. The rainy season severely limits movement from May/June to September/October, including internal flights, cutting most of the roads.


The office and the Guesthouses are on the same location in Juba, in the centre of the town. The accommodation is simple, but comfortable. Each staff has his/her own self-contained room with Air Conditioner. City Power is non-existent, but a generator is in place.
