Transforming lives in South Sudan
Keeping people alive
Marion and her son Bosco are living together in a camp that is home to thousands of people who sought safety from fighting in South Sudan. Concern's team are helping the people in this camp by screening children for malnutrition and providing emergency food. Marion said:
We wouldn’t be alive without the help we are getting here.
We're working with a community in the poorest state of South Sudan, northern Bahr el Ghazal, to improve a road. Now, when the rainy season begins, two villages will be linked to a market. We're paying people from the community to help.
Joseph, married with seven children, has been working on the stretch of road for 14 days. He said:
This work is good because it will benefit the whole community and I also get a small benefit...I will spend the money I earn on food for my family and school fees.
Helping families feed themselves
We've also worked with the community in Bahr el Ghazal to help people grow their own vegetables. Standing proudly beside the vegetables she has grown, Namia said:
There was a time when life was not like this. I used to just gather wild fruits or fire wood but now we have all these vegetables. We have food to eat and a small amount to sell.
