World Vision South Sudan
World Vision has been working in South Sudan since 1989 and has served over 1.3 million people, more than 600,000 of them children, through their humanitarian work. Their operations cover four major zones: Juba, Upper Nile, Warrap and Western Equatoria.
They were one of the few organizations that provided assistance during war to the displaced populations in what was then the Southern Sudan region of Sudan, until after the birth of the Republic of South Sudan.
The widespread violence during the country’s 5th anniversary of independence made the humanitarian emergency even worse. Food insecurity continue to plague over 7 million people and a recent UN report stated that an estimated 360,000 children under five suffer severe malnutrition.
They are a global Christian humanitarian organization. They partner with children, families, and their communities to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice in South Sudan and making sure that all children:
enjoy good health and nutrition
have access to clean water and improved sanitation facilities
are educated and prepared for life’s challenges and opportunities
are protected from harm
experience the love of God and their neighbours
are participating in the decisions that affect them and their communities
live in resilient families and communities with diversified livelihoods to be able to provide for their current and future needs.
They follow Jesus's example to show unconditional love to the poor and oppressed. Serving every child they can - of any faith or none.See more
