Displaced by violence: the people of South Sudan need our help

From Presbyterian World Mission

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance and Presbyterian World Mission are compelled to help more than 90,000 displaced people, mostly Murle, in South Sudan who fled inter-ethnic conflict and gross human rights violations by the South Sudanese military. Our goal is to provide food, emergency supplies, trauma recovery and peace building support. We are working with our Sudanese partners, but the needs are much greater than we can handle without significant gifts from supporters like you.

Presbyterian Relief and Disaster Assistance, the relief and development arm of the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan, will be providing food, emergency supplies and resources for recovery for those  displaced by the continuing violence. In response to the need to stop the violence and promote reconciliation RECONCILE has planned a strategic response which is integral to ending  the “cycle of violence” in Jonglei State   including: Trauma Healing for children and adults  victimized by this reign of terror, followed by facilitation of Women’s Peace Building efforts  and  mobilization of South Sudanese Church Leaders for Peace.
