Famine risk in South Sudan

AFTER two years of conflict resulting in mass displacement, human rights abuses and a humanitarian crisis, communities in South Sudan are at breaking point. Experts say there is a concrete risk of famine occuring before Christmas, and Christian Aid is working hard to help people like William (right). William

William fled to Nyal when armed groups seized his livestock and looted and burned his home. Women were raped and many people killed. His sons brought him by canoe, a journey which took four days. Some members of the family have been left behind. William is staying with relatives until it is safe to return home. A Christian Aid partner is working with his family who will soon receive seeds, tools and other emergency items. Donate to Christian Aid here or call 01865 246818.
