South Sudan Crisis Appeal

The people of South Sudan are facing a battle to survive. The world’s newest nation has been engulfed in a vast humanitarian crisis since violence broke out in December 2013.

More than two million people have been forced to flee their homes, many of whom have escaped to neighbouring countries.

People are in desperate need of the most basic support – food, clean water and shelter. You can help them by making a donation.
