Food shortage in South Sudan

The Republic of South Sudan has been at war for 30 years. In 2016, fighting broke out again, causing unrest. Many thousands fled to the country's border, neighboring Uganda, and the nearby refugee camps to find protection and help. But the reprieve is limited. Children who have fled alone are often left to their own devices and defenseless against adverse circumstances.children South Sudan refugees

Children's suffering in refugee camps

Volunteers and pastors now work for World Emergency Relief in the camps helping traumatized children.

The children who come to the refugee camps have not seen their mothers and siblings for weeks. They do not know if their families just abandoned them, or if they were killed or taken away by slave traders. The only thing they know is that they are lost, alone, and without help. The days of the refugee children are all about pure survival. If they get something to eat during the day and get a few mouthfuls of water, it's like a miracle to them. All those children who had to witness violent disturbances and violence in the southern Sudanese capital of Juba are disturbed and traumatized. Many of them are in urgent need of psychological care so that they can process what they have experienced and not suffer any more emotional harm. Our goal is to provide these children with psychological support, shelter, and food,
