South Sudan: 4.7 million people face severe food shortages.
Famine has officially been declared in parts of South Sudan – with 100,000 people facing starvation. A combination of conflict and drought has pushed hundreds of thousands to the brink of survival with 270,000 children suffering the most critical form of malnutrition.
World Vision is working right now in South Sudan to provide urgent relief to children and families impacted by severe food shortages. Thanks to World Vision supporters, families are receiving things like:
- Monthly food rations of staple foods - sorghum, corn, oil, beans, sugar and salt.
- Targeted support to pregnant women and children who have medical complications from acute malnutrition.
- Seeds, tools and training to farmers to build self-reliance and stave off the horrible effects of famine.
In partnership with the World Food Programme, World Vision is helping over half a million people with food assistance in South Sudan. But 4.7 million face severe food shortages – and need your support.
WE URGENTLY NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
Help relief efforts in South Sudan and other countries at risk of famine.
