Situation Overview

Our brothers and sisters in the new nation of South Sudan struggle to recover from years of violence before becoming a new country, as well as from conflict in December 2013.  Those who are displaced are in need of humanitarian aid as well as security in their homeland.

Our response

Through our partner, the Presbyterian Relief and Development Agency, your gifts to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance are providing emergency relief for families in Jonglei State and Malakal affected by the recent violence.  The assistance is improving health conditions, increasing the availability of clean drinking water, providing food and non-food necessities, and helping to secure livelihoods.

In partnership, we are also supporting peace-building initiatives in the country, helping to strengthen and support families and communities as they return home and seek peace.

“…for it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure. (Philippians 2:13)
