South Sudan

The civil war in South Sudan has killed thousands and over 3 million people have been forced to flee their homes. Food, medical care and drinking water are all in short supply. Children are recruited by armed groups. We support families with basic needs and provide psychosocial help to children affected by the conflict.

What we do

Basic needs

Due to the blockade of the city of Yei, its people no longer have access to basic necessities. To assist trapped families, Terre des hommes distributes hygiene kits, repairs water pumps and purifies water, which is especially important in the prevention of cholera. In addition, we distribute seeds and tools to small farmer families, enabling them to grow vegetables and fight against hunger. Highly vulnerable people are also able to participate in the “Cash for Work” programme by working on the maintenance of access roads. This will help them meet their basic needs.

Child protection

Our local experts organise psychosocial support in protected areas for children and their families living in resettlement camps in Juba, as well as in our other intervention areas in South Sudan.

Opposing Harm

« Food stocks often last less than a week. »
