South Sudan Facing a Growing Humanitarian Crisis

Toronto: The United Church of Canada is sounding an alarm about the growing humanitarian crisis in South Sudan. With international attention focused on other conflicts, such as those in Syria, Ukraine, and Nigeria, the church is particularly concerned that deteriorating conditions in South Sudan are being inadequately reported in the media and relief needs are seriously underfunded.

South Sudan Emergency Appeal Launched

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God...
Matthew 5:9

Alarmed at the growing humanitarian crisis in South Sudan, the United Church is issuing a church-wide appeal. Donations will aid displaced persons with food, water, shelter and medicine. Mission & Service partners are already on the ground in refugee camps serving those in need.
