People facing starvation in South Sudan urgently need your help


Since conflict broke out two years ago, more than 10,000 people in South Sudan have lost their lives. Millions have been forced to flee their homes and leave behind possessions, crops and livestock.

Now, the threat of famine looms. Seven million people - many of them children - are at risk of severe food shortage in the months ahead unless international aid is dramatically and urgently increased.

We're working around the clock to deliver emergency food and we urgently need your support over the coming months to reach more people facing hunger.

Emergencies like these are not always seen in the news. We rely on people like you to give a monthly gift to Oxfam, so that we can continue our work and be there for people anywhere in the world, when they desperately need us.

Those who have survived war in South Sudan are now on the brink of starvation. Please don't wait - donate now and save lives.
