Nearly 4 million people remain in urgent need in South Sudan following the conflict that broke out in December 2013. Over 1.9 million people have fled their homes and are displaced within the country and over 479,000 have fled to neighboring countries. We have reached more than 360,000 people with life saving essentials, but we urgently need to reach more.
Since 1997 we have supported the National Association of Small Farmers to help and encourage women to become food producers. They learn environmentally-friendly farming techniques and participate in workshops on economic empowerment and gender-based violence.
