South Sudan: save lives

Late last year, widespread fighting broke out in South Sudan. This left millions of people with no choice but to flee their homes to escape the violence.

Many have taken shelter in displacement camps where there is limited access to food and safe drinking water.

Heat

In stifling heat, families are struggling to survive. Shelter, sanitation and basic supplies are desperately needed. Disease is rife – cholera and malaria are a constant threat and children are suffering from illnesses which can be fatal.  

Moses

Moses and his family fled the conflict when soldiers began shooting randomly at civilians. In the confusion, he was separated from his mother. He was so traumatised that he didn’t ask where she was for three days. No one knows if she is alive. Now, he is being looked after by a family friend, but his future is uncertain.
