South Sudan Refugee Crisis Response




Afflicted by conflict and hunger

Last Update:2019/03/12

Over 5.2 million South Sudanese need your help

Since December 2013, South Sudan has been in the midst of an armed conflict. Some 4 million people have lost their homes and become displaced. More than 1.87 million are internally displaced, while over 2.27 million are refugees seeking refuge in neighbouring countries. In January 2019, nearly 800,000 South Sudanese were still remaining in Uganda, with food and clean water being two of the most urgent needs for them.

On top of violence, South Sudanese also suffer from hunger. As the ongoing conflict continues to worsen the country’s deteriorating economy and food crisis, it is estimated that over 5.2 million people in South Sudan are experiencing food insecurity.

Kevin Chiu, the then CEO of World Vision Hong Kong, visited refugee camps in Uganda to understand the situation of South Sudanese refugees and the frontline works of World Vision.

Forced to flee in a rush, South Sudanese refugees lack food, cooking utensils and other commodities.

Over 1 million children are suffering from malnutrition.

Children who are forced to flee or even be separated from their families suffer from trauma, as a result of the conflict.

Refugee children can express their feelings through drawing in Child Friendly Space.

World Vision staff are on the ground implementing response work, providing assistance to affected children, women and communities. Our response work includes the following:

Food Assistance

Partner with World Food Programme to distribute food, cash/food voucher in South Sudan and Uganda


Construct latrines and water supply system to improve the hygiene condition of affected people in South Sudan and Uganda


Provide seeds, agricultural tools and agricultural training to the affected refugees and host communities in South Sudan and Uganda

Child Protection

Establish Child Friendly Spaces to provide a safe and play space to the refugee children in Uganda

ACT NOW to continue supporting South Sudanese refugee children and families!
