Entering 2021, South Sudan continues to face hardships caused by the pandemic, economic fallout, violence, and natural disasters.

Many South Sudanese can’t meet basic nutritional needs. Locals struggle to obtain adequate food because of natural disasters and the financial consequences of the pandemic. Reports estimate that 7.24 million South Sudanese will face either food insecurity or crisis in the spring and summer of 2021.

And conflict is practically an everyday occurrence in South Sudan, with the violence that began in 2013 continuing into the present day. Many have died. Others have been forced to become refugees.

Hope for the Hurting
