Oxfam in South Sudan

Oxfam has a dedicated team working across South Sudan to rebuild jobs and livelihoods, provide humanitarian assistance and promote active citizenship. We focus on providing clean water, public health and livelihoods support, and work with partners on peace building and governance issues. We work to raise the voices of South Sudanese people and to highlight the root causes of the problems they face and ensure the protection of people who are particularly at risk. Since the crisis began in December 2013, Oxfam has provided lifesaving food, water and sanitation assistance to nearly 700,000 people affected by the conflict and 350,000 with agriculture, peace building and governance.

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.
