Famine Relief in South Sudan
Provide food and water to vulnerable South Sudanese communities.
Sudan Relief Fund
When the United Nations declared a famine in South Sudan, nearly five million people were experiencing severe food insecurity (about 47 percent of the nation’s population). Working with the Catholic Diocese of Tombura-Yambio, including Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala, CMMB responded. We immediately stepped up emergency response efforts to provide food and water to vulnerable communities such as those in Rimenze. Alongside Bishop Eduardo, CMMB distributed beans, maize, salt, flour, and cooking oil to 6,000 people who had fled violence near their homes. In addition, CMMB provided healthcare, nutritional screening, treatment for malnourished children, clean water, and community-led health education in Rimenze.
