From our staff
Augustino Buya Mashual, Programme Manager
I've worked for Oxfam for 24 years. Most of our work in South Sudan involves helping people who have either been displaced by the conflict in this region, or who are supporting people who have been displaced. We provide clean water and sanitation facilities, and also distribute supplies like mosquito nets to prevent malaria.
After decades of brutal war, South Sudan is being built up almost from scratch. It needs increased support - and long-term support - from the international community to help development and to provide security for its people. That's why Oxfam, working as a humanitarian organisation, is important to the country.
