Emergency assistance for South Sudan
March 19, 2014
The United Nations estimates there are 4.9 million people who need assistance because of the ongoing crisis in South Sudan. Almost 709,000 people are displaced within the country and about 218,000 more are now refugees in neighbouring countries.
There are concerns about the availability of food now and in the months ahead. In areas where armed conflict has been interrupting agricultural work farmers have been unable to prepare for the coming growing season.
Mennonite Central Committee is responding in the following ways:
We ask for prayers for the people of South Sudan. We appreciate your support and are thankful for all donations to our South Sudan emergency assistance work.
