And help pursue justice and prevent mass atrocities in some of the world's most fragile states.
Thank you for your continued support at this time.
We work to prevent escalations of conflict in fragile states through combating hate speech and divisions. Coronavirus has escalated hate speech worldwide, as vulnerable groups have become the targets of stigmatization, stereotyping and scapegoating.
In South Sudan, where we work to prevent identity violence, coronavirus has come accompanied by a spread of misinformation and rumours, as well as an increase in hate and violence induced by coronavirus stigma.
Some of the youth leaders we have trained live in refugee camps, where social distancing is exceedingly difficult to implement. Food relief shortages and limited access to health facilities also place residents at greater risk. Refugees, who are already marginalised, risk being further ostracised by the spread of the virus to camps.
More than ever, peace-building in fragile states is vitally important.
We are working hard to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 misinformation in fragile states and refugee camps and to support those struggling to survive as a result of inadequate humanitarian response. We are closely supporting youth leaders in conducting awareness campaigns around COVID-19. Find out more about our awareness campaigns in South Sudan here.

We would like to thank you again for your continued generosity and support to help fund the work we do, to support communities in South Sudan, and prevent exacerbations of divisions at this time.
