What We Do

Christian Aid in South Sudan

Christian Aid has been operating in the Sudan and the current South Sudan since the 1970s and we opened our field office in Juba, South Sudan, in 2008.

South Sudan became an independent country in 2011 amid much hope and optimism, following a referendum in which its people voted overwhelmingly to separate from Sudan. However, in December 2013, a major conflict erupted that has devastated areas of the country and escalated ethnic tensions.

South Sudan is in the midst of a humanitarian crisis. Our partners are working in the areas worst affected by violence, providing emergency supplies such as food, clean water, hygiene kits and shelter.
