South Sudan

World Vision has been working in South Sudan since 1989 and has served over 1.3 million people, more than 600,000 of them children, through our humanitarian work. Our operations cover four major zones: Juba, Upper Nile, Warrap, and Western Equatoria.

We were one of the few organizations that provided assistance during the war to the displaced populations in what was then the Southern Sudan region of Sudan, until after the birth of the Republic of South Sudan on 9 July 2011.

The widespread violence during the country’s 5th anniversary of independence made the humanitarian emergency even worse. Food insecurity continues to plague over 7 million people and a recent UN report stated that an estimated 360,000 children under five suffer severe malnutrition.

Today, World Vision's humanitarian assistance has reached out to over 1.5 million people in need through various initiatives such as food security and livelihood, health and nutrition, protection, education, water, sanitation and hygiene among others.

COVID-19 Pandemic: One Year On

The coronavirus pandemic was declared globally on 11 March 2020 and the first cases in South Sudan were recorded on 5 April 2020. The country's population has been through a lot of suffering and was worsened by the crisis. But it was also a year that brought people together showing courage, resilience, and unity.
