South Sudan Emergency Famine Appeal
In February 2017 famine was declared in Unity State and Northern Bahl el Ghazal State (where COCOA’s Emmanuel, Ploughs, and Health Professional Support Projects are located). This comes at a time when South Sudan is already in crisis. 3 million people have been forced to flee their homes and 7.5 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection because of conflict, inter-community violence, economic decline, disease and climate shock. The fighting has simply meant that farmers have been unable to plant and grow food for their communities.
In response Global Mission Partners is partnering with the ACT Alliance South Sudan forum members and the South Sudan Council of Churches. These organisations have staff and resources on the ground and can act quickly and provide Food Relief, Nutrition, Emergency Health, seeds, tools and care. Around 250,000 severely affected people across South Sudan will benefit.
Your tax-deductible gift to GMP through Churches of Christ Overseas Aid (COCOA) will bring humanitarian assistance to those in greatest need. Attached is an appeal response form for those who would like to contribute to the emergency relief in South Sudan.
