Imagine living each day in fear, surrounded by conflict. For more than two years, this has been the reality for many people in South Sudan as civil war between the government and opposition has persisted.
Although long-delayed steps towards peace are finally being taken, conflict and instability continue amidst severe humanitarian needs.
Relentless fighting has forced 2.4 million people from their homes, as they have fled from the violence, some from the threat of sexual abuse, executions and other human rights abuses. Civilians need your help.
Harvests have been disrupted, and food and fuel prices have risen. People are severely hungry. They are eating wild foods like water lily roots, and drinking unsafe water to survive. 4.3 million people are in urgent need of food.
This year South Sudan could face its most severe lean season since gaining independence in 2011, putting hundreds of thousands more at risk of severe hunger. They desperately need your support.
