Anglican Aid is working with Bishop Gwynne College and the Anglican Diocese of Wernyol in South Sudan to bring emergency relief and aid to those devastated by the flooding in Jonglei, South Sudan.
Locals have been without shelter and essential supplies since the banks of the Nile River burst in August. 8 of the 10 counties in Jonglei State have been affected by the flood waters sweeping across South Sudan.
While the South Sudanese are, sadly, familiar with flood conditions, the volume of water and extensive damage this time far exceeds any flood since 1958. Many have died while migrating south to higher ground. The month-long journey is made with whole families and sometimes even livestock, via small canoes, rafts made of plastic sheeting, or on foot.
Livelihoods have been destroyed, thousands have been displaced by their homes, and countless people are now facing the threat of hunger.
Your gift will provide much-needed items such as food, blankets, mosquito nets, plastic sheeting and tents.Give now
Your giving impact
Funds donated through Anglican Aid will provide basic items such as food, blankets, and mosquito nets to those who have been displaced by the floods. Plastic sheeting for makeshift rafts will help families transport their possessions, livestock, and any elderly family members as they seek higher ground.
The assistance will be distributed through the local church, ensuring pastoral care is also given.
What your gift will provide:
$800 – a large tent for 10-15 people
$100 – a small tent for a family of 4-6
$50 – plastic sheeting for two families
