A little more than a year after declaring its independence from Sudan, the nation of South Sudan remains one of the least developed and most unstable places in the world. Hundreds of thousands of people have returned from Sudan, hoping to restart their lives in their native country. But most are returning empty-handed.
Warrap is one of the poorest states in South Sudan with almost no infrastructure to support the returning population. We’re working, in partnership with the Integral Alliance, a global alliance of 18 Christian relief and development agencies, to reach vulnerable families and provide them with the tools to plant crops, training, seeds—the means to survive this crisis.
Each family will be provided with a seed and tool kit, which will allow them to start growing plants before the rainy season. You can support a family and help them start their lives over by donating to our South Sudan response. You’ll provide practical assistance and show them that someone cares.
We’ll be in South Sudan long-term, helping the people of this new nation rebuild their lives and develop sustainable communities. Your help will begin the process of healing.
Please help us reach those who are suffering with life-saving food and supplies. Donate now.
World Concern has been working in South Sudan since 2005. In addition to food security, we're helping establish local economies through vocational training, education, small savings groups, business development and child development.
We plan to walk alongside the people of South Sudan as they resettle in new communities and rebuild their lives. Our programs will help create economic opportunities and teach people to support themselves in this new country.
In 2011, the people of South Sudan voted to secede from the north and form their own country. Since the referendum, hundreds of thousands of people have returned to their native land in the south with nothing. They are finding little or no infrastructure and few employment opportunities.
Sudan has been recovering from a 20-year civil war, which destroyed the country's social, political, educational, medical and economic infrastructure.
