Join Jenny Simmons and World Concern as we transform lives, one village at a time. World Concern’s campaign matches you with a community for three years. With your support, we will work with the community to accomplish specific goals as they begin to see a better future emerge.
Lietnhom is a village in South Sudan, the world’s newest country, which celebrated its independence in July 2011. But 20 years of civil war took its toll on the people here. More than two million died. Four million were displaced from their homes. The war depleted livelihoods and left most of South Sudan without basic infrastructure and government services.
With you, World Concern will walk alongside families in Lietnhom, helping them build their lives and their community from the ground up. Together, we’ll focus on long-term solutions, so the people of Lietnhom can stand on their own.
Our priorities over these next three years will include:
For $33 a month for three years, you will make a powerful and significant investment in the lives of struggling families.
We cannot do this without you.
“I’ve traveled all over the world and I’ve never seen poverty like this,” said singer Jenny Simmons while in South Sudan with World Concern. Jenny visited some of the world’s most remote, undeveloped villages on her trip.
“I had three different moms try to give me their babies. As a mother, you have to be in a pretty desperate place to do that,” she recalled. Jenny connected deeply with the families she met in South Sudan, and feels compelled to tell others about the incredible challenges they face.
“There’s no difference between these families and mine, except they live here. I was born in a place with food and water and clothes … and they weren’t,” she said. “You’d think there’s this huge gap between us, but there’s not. We’re all sons and daughters of God. We’re all created in his image.”
“There’s no reason a mother should try to give me her baby. I can’t change the whole world. And I can’t bring that baby home—as much as I wanted to—but I can partner with World Concern. I can set my eyes and my heart beyond myself,” says Jenny. “Sometimes we don’t know where to start. This is a good place.”
For $33 a month, you will take part in an amazing transformation. We need partners like you to make it happen.
