Ongoing conflict combined with the recent declaration of famine in parts of South Sudan means the country is slipping deeper into crisis. More than 100,000 people are on the verge of starvation. An additional 1 million are on the brink of famine. Nearly 5 million overall are in desperate need of help.
“We had no food to eat and our hope had disappeared,”
A survivor recalling his family’s escape from the violence that descended on their community.
When families in South Sudan fled the violence that threatened or engulfed their villages, they left everything behind. There was no time to gather up food, personal belongings, or even farm tools.
HOPE International Development Agency is helping families who have fled to safer locations by providing urgently needed food supplies as well as supporting efforts to grow local food in areas where families will be staying until the conflict, drought, and food shortages subside.
The vast majority of people affected by this crisis are women and children and funds are urgently needed to help them at a time when they are incredibly vulnerable.
When clean water is present, families are able to focus on improving their lives through health education and hygiene training, increase their income by participating in self help groups that provide mutual support, income-earning skills training, and access low-interest loans that enable women to start businesses.
Help ensure that indigenous families in the Philippines gain access to clean water, and training and support that will create a sustainable source of food and income.
A gift to "where most needed" enables HOPE to increase support to important initiatives among families and children that need help right away.
Donate to help people gain access to clean water, nutritious food, good health, education, and income generating skills.
Provide monthly support for an orphaned or disadvantaged child, a family, or an entire community and free them from poverty.
