Help families from war-torn, famine-affected South Sudan.
War has ravished South Sudan for the past three years and as a result, 1.5million South Sudanese civilians have fled to refugee camps.
An estimated 100,000 people who have stayed in South Sudan, are now facing starvation, with a million more on the brink of famine.
More than 20 million people may face starvation in a series of famines over the next six months.
– World Food Programme (WFP)
The impact of the three-year conflict, combined with high food prices, economic disruption and low agricultural production has resulted in the UN declaring famine in Unity State, South Sudan.
Tearfund is responding. Your generous donation can bring hope and help to ease the suffering of affected families.

At least 20 per cent of a population faces extreme food shortages
30 per cent of people experience acute malnutrition
At least two people per 10,000 die every day
Acute malnutrition remains a major public health emergency in South Sudan. Out of 23 counties, 14 have Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) at or above 15%. GAM of above 30% is observed in Leer and Panyijiar while Mayendit had GAM levels of 27.3%.
