Why World Vision is in South Sudan
South Sudan observed 6 years of independence in July 2016, but the country continues to experience instability and is still a fragile state. The humanitarian crisis in Upper Nile occurred as a result of fighting and violence in Juba in December 2013 and later spread to other parts of the country including Upper Nile. The situation in Upper Nile further worsened following May 2015 violence due to defection of Agulic/Shilluk forces from the government. As a result, access constraints due to mainly to conflict restricted aid agencies from reaching vulnerable people with vital assistance.
We never give up on people
Millions of people have been forced to flee their homes due to violence: Families escaping fighting in Iraq and Syria, caught in the conflict in South Sudan, and trapped in other dangerous situations. More than half of these refugees and displaced people are children. You can help provide critical essentials like food, shelter, and safe places for children to play and learn.
