Today, unimaginable suffering, over 1.1 million displaced people, continued violence, disrupted livelihoods and the repercussions of no harvest threaten this already shattered nation.
Since MAF began flying in South Sudan in 1950, we have seen great need, ongoing unrest and suffering, and the need for God’s peace and reconciliation. Will you pray for this nation?
Fighting could erupt in the north - There are concerns that South Sudan's warring factions are arming themselves for another bout of fighting.
Cholera outbreak in South Sudan - Thousands of people have been infected. If untreated, the disease can be fatal. The outbreak also adds to a growing hunger crisis in the country.
Hunger 'to affect four million' - British aid agencies warn of critical food shortages in parts of South Sudan, after months of fighting has prevented farmers planting or harvesting crops.
UN humanitarian update - UN OCHA reports that humanitarian needs rose in June. 'Insecurity and alarming hunger', cholera and flooding are all adding to the mounting crisis.
What can I pray for?
Please pray for the people of South Sudan, for MAF, and for the many organisations striving to meet such overwhelming needs.
