Welcoming a new country

South Sudan celebrates its independence tomorrow. Concern Worldwide welcomes the world’s newest independent country and Africa’s newest state.

Best wishes

We send both the Republic of Sudan and newly independent South Sudan our best wishes for the future. As the countries continue to negotiate on various issues, Concern remains committed to working with the poorest people in both countries in collaboration with the respective governments.

Committed to the poorest

We first started working in Sudan in 1985 and currently have programmes in Darfur and South Kordofan. We are directly helping over 470,000 people through water, sanitation, nutrition, health and livelihoods projects.

In South Sudan, Concern runs livelihoods and health and nutrition projects in North Bahr El Ghazal, helping 397,000 people.
