South Sudan

THE SITUATION IN BRIEF

What You Need to Know

South Sudan’s civil war has devastated the country, resulting in 300,000 deaths, displacing 3.5 million people, and causing massive inflation and widespread famine. An estimated six million people face severe food shortages and around one million children are malnourished, according to the UN.
 
On July 11, 2016, SOS Children’s Village Juba was evacuated as fighting erupted between rival political forces. Six months after being evacuated, SOS families returned to the village and children and young people returned to school. But the situation in South Sudan is still volatile and children at risk still need your help.

How the Refugee Crisis Impacts Children

Worldwide conflict has exacted a severe psychological and physical toll on millions of displaced children. They have seen their childhoods vanish and their families killed. As refugees, these vulnerable children are subject to trafficking, exploitation and discrimination.

How Supporters Like You Are Making a Difference

The number of refugees, asylum seekers, and other migrants to Europe significantly increased in the beginning of 2015. Since then, SOS has provided support to refugee children and their families as they travel thousands of miles in search of refuge in Europe. Thanks to help from our supporters, we offer assistance to displaced children and their families all along their journey — both in transit and upon arrival in a host country — in the form of shelter, food, medical and psychological support.

SOS Children’s Villages is actively supporting vulnerable children and their families at virtually every point along their journey — from Syria and Lebanon to many countries in Eastern Europe. Our long and respected presence in these countries gives us the experience and flexibility to respond quickly and effectively to this evolving crisis.
