4.8 million people in South Sudan are facing severe hunger in the middle of the harvest season. This is food crisis fast spiralling out of control and urgent action is needed. South Sudanese are fleeing violence only to face a renewed threat from hunger. You can help.

Oxfam is there with life-saving support, but we urgently need your help to do more.

"Even among the local people, organizing themselves to share what little food and shelter and resources they have, hope is running out."

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.
