South Sudan – A humanitarian crisis
it’s women and children that are most at risk of violence and hunger.
Many children have been orphaned or separated from their families. Boys are being recruited as child soldiers. Girls and women are being raped and exploited, or sold into early marriage so their families can survive.
Without more food supplies, many will starve to death.
Your help is urgently needed to deliver lifesaving food aid and keep children, girls and women safe through this horrific crisis.
Christine saw her daughter and husband murdered, before fleeing with her two grandchildren, age 5 and 7. She held them tight as they ran, but it wasn’t enough to keep them safe. More armed bandits attacked – and they became separated.
Today Christine is sheltering in an abandoned village, surviving on one meal of boiled seeds a day. She’s given up hope of ever seeing her grandchildren again and fears for the horrors they may face: rape, murder, abuse and starvation.
