Picture Sudan. A country torn apart by over half a century of civil war. 2 million people killed. 4.5 million people displaced. 2.5 million people living in makeshift tents in the desert outside the capital Khartoum. 100,000 orphaned and abandoned children struggling to survive.
Picture South Sudan. A separate country born out of the war in 2011. A country of grave tribal conflict where children are lured into joining the militia by something as simple as the promise of a meal. 2.4 million people displaced. 2.8 million people desperately in need of food. 6.2 million people in urgent need of assistance.
You can help bring peace. By donating today you can help the SVP continue running projects that bring hope and peace into lives torn apart by war.
Baby feeding centres provide daily meals to babies and pre-school children in camps for people who have been displaced. These centres keep children alive and give them an alternative source of sustenance so they don’t later join a militia as child soldiers. Medical centres run by the SVP in the camps and in women’s prisons provide medical aid for men, women and children living in dire conditions.
The SVP water tanker provides over 35,000 people a day with a reliable supply of fresh, clean water in an environment where wells cannot be sunk and droughts are common.
Vocational training enables unskilled young people previously at risk of becoming child soldiers or drifting into a life of crime, learn a trade and contribute to the rebuilding of their nation.
