The Republic of South Sudan gained its independence from Sudan in July 2011, and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) formed a government. Two years
later, disagreements inside the government caused a split within the SPLM. This developed into a military confrontation and a civil war erupted in December 2013 killing
more than 100,000 people and causing over 500,000 people to flee.


The conflict has continued since 2013, causing tens of thousands of deaths and widespread displacement of communities. People have been forced to leave their villages, their farms, and their livelihoods. This along with the breakdown of the economy in South Sudan has caused a widespread food security crisis and on 20th February, famine was officially declared; the first time in six years anywhere in the world.

How you can help

Working to serve displaced people through our partner church network in Sudan. As our partners, Africa Inland Church are already working on the ground in South Sudan, they are in a good position to respond to the increasing need of local people.

AIC are equipping each church in the network to become a relief centre. The churches will provide
essential food for the vulnerable people displaced in and around the area of Juba.
