Yes, I want to help provide relief and support for children in South Sudan
July 9th marks four years since South Sudan gained independence. However, celebrations will be marred by the knowledge that children growing up in the world’s youngest country are enduring a deepening crisis. Since the outbreak of fighting in December 2013, humanitarian needs in South Sudan have escalated to alarming levels. In addition to the 1.6 million people currently displaced inside South Sudan, over 600,000 people have fled to neighboring countries. More than 4.6 million people have to live in the shadow of food insecurity, with the possibility that it could escalate into famine. Many children are now growing up in a world that has only known violence and fear.
Donate now to the South Sudan Children in Crisis Fund. Ten percent of your contribution will be used to help us prepare for the next emergency. Nobody knows when the next crisis will strike, but your support also helps Save the Children provide assistance in the critical first hours and days of an emergency when children need us most.
In South Sudan, more than 4 million people, many of them vulnerable children, are facing severe hunger. What’s more, at least one million people have been affected by ongoing conflict. Please give generously to help us feed and protect children and provide desperately needed relief to families.
