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 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.

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