Focus on South Sudan

South Sudan became the newest country in July 2011. Even before gaining independence from Sudan, residents struggled with rampant poverty, inadequate civil services, intercommunal conflict, and now are on the verge of widespread famine.

  • Nearly 1.6 million people displaced internally, along with 2.4 million refugees (ReliefWeb, 2021)
  • Thousands of people are living in famine conditions, whereas undernutrition is at critical levels. (ReliefWeb, 2021)
  • 8.3 million are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance (ReliefWeb, 2021)

With all this considered, one thing remains clear: The people of South Sudan are resilient and, with the support of donors like you, families in need there can access opportunities to break the chains of poverty and move toward success.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to South Sudan

Islamic Relief USA works to alleviate suffering in South Sudan by providing urgent humanitarian aid to the millions of families who have been displaced as a result of conflict. This aid comes at the most critical of times for many who are left in need of the most basic necessities.

Here’s just a sampling of recent efforts for families in need across South Sudan

  • Providing integrated programs that open access to water and sanitation, as well as health and nutrition
  • Improving livestock production and access to animal health services to bring financial security to farmers
  • Delivering urgent aid to families affected by conflict
