South Sudan Crisis

Help families from war-torn, famine-affected South Sudan.

The Situation

Famine declared in parts of South Sudan

War has ravished South Sudan for the past three years and as a result, 1.5million South Sudanese civilians have fled to refugee camps.

An estimated 100,000 people who have stayed in South Sudan, are now facing starvation, with a million more on the brink of famine.  

More than 20 million people may face starvation in a series of famines over the next six months.

– World Food Programme (WFP)

The impact of the three-year conflict, combined with high food prices, economic disruption and low agricultural production has resulted in the UN declaring famine in Unity State, South Sudan.
