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.
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 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.
