South Sudan: Conflict leaves families in turmoil

Mothers wait patiently for their children to be treated by our staff

With only one functional health facility left in the area, our medical staff have been assisting to treat gunshot wounds, injuries and even deliver babies.

Disaster overview

Inter-ethnic conflict and clashes between armed youths led to casualties, the destruction of important malnutrition treatment sites and thousands of families fleeing in search of a safer place to call home.
