Rescue Displaced Families in South Sudan

by World Concern Vetted since 2011 Site Visit Verified


In South Sudan, families are being forced from their homes due to the ongoing violence and food crisis. The situation right now is dire as women and children are arriving in displacement camps without food, clothing, shelter materials, or support. World Concern is responding to help families who have fled violence by providing emergency supplies, food, water, trauma counseling, and more.

The food crisis in South Sudan is rapidly deteriorating. An extreme lack of water and shockingly high food prices are pushing this young nation to the brink of famine. Ongoing violence and civil unrest is only adding to this burden, forcing desperate families to leave the safety of their homes and take refuge in displacement camps. The situation is dire, and international assistance is needed urgently to save lives.


World Concern is responding in areas of greatest need, where few other agencies are able to provide assistance. With donor support, families are provided with life-saving assistance: food, clean water, trauma counseling, and emergency supplies, such as tarps, shelter materials, blankets, cooking pots, and mosquito nets.

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 economic development, better farming techniques, education, and more. World Concern stays with communities through the relief phase, well into long-term development.
