Portraits from the South Sudan Crisis

Help those fleeing

Refugees from South Sudan and around the world need your help. You can save lives.


Food insecurity and violence are devastating the people of South Sudan, which has become the world’s fastest growing refugee crisis and the largest in Africa. More than 1.5 million South Sudanese have fled to neighboring countries in the region. The vast majority are women and children.

Arrival centers in northern Uganda set up to assist those fleeing are stretched to the breaking point. Those who make it arrive weak and malnourished. While the UN Refugee Agency is on the ground providing assistance, the response is underfunded and displacement is expected to rise.
