Rescue Displaced Families in South Sudan



Nearly one million people have fled their homes in South Sudan since violence broke out in December. Women and children are arriving in ill-equipped camps with no food, clothing, shelter materials, or support. World Concern is responding to help families caught up in this crisis by providing emergency supplies, food, and more, as well as helping stabilize and support communities and individuals through our ongoing long-term programs in South Sudan.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

When fighting broke out between rebel groups and government troops in South Sudan in December, thousands of families fled their homes and villages in search of safety. Some fled the country, but more than 700,000 people are homeless in host communities or temporary camps throughout South Sudan. They left everything behind and are in need of food, water, medical care, shelter, and emergency supplies.

How will this project solve this problem?

World Concern is responding in areas where no other agencies are providing assistance. With donor support, families will be provided with emergency supplies, such as tarps, shelter materials, blankets, cooking pots, and mosquito nets, as well as food rations.

Potential Long Term Impact

We also operate long-term programs in South Sudan, and will remain here as people build the new lives they've hoped for since gaining independence. Communities and lives affected by ongoing instability in South Sudan will be transformed through livelihoods, economic development, food security and more. World Concern stays with communities through the relief phase, well into long-term development.
