Civil war and famine in South Sudan have caused nearly 5 million people to be food insecure. Rates of acute malnutrition are well over the emergency thresholds in most of the country. This is the first internationally declared famine anywhere in the world in the last six years.

Lutheran Disaster Response works to bring God's hope, healing and renewal to those who have been affected by the conflict. In the days, weeks and months ahead, we will work with our partners on the ground, helping to restore communities.

Your gifts will help those impacted in South Sudan, and together we stand ready to provide assistance. Gifts designated for the "South Sudan Relief" will be used in full (100 percent) to assist those impacted until the response is complete.
