Africa Famine Appeal


Please give to the Africa Famine Appeal.

Help our partners to respond to the needs of extremely vulnerable people.

Famine was declared in South Sudan in February 2017. It was the first time in six years that famine was declared anywhere in the world. Nearly 6 million people – more than 40 percent of South Sudan’s population – are in need of urgent food. In the worst hit parts of the country, one in three children is acutely malnourished. In a country already devastated by war and a collapsed economy, severe drought is the final straw – families have exhausted every means they have to survive.

We need to act now – it is the beginning of the lean season. Without much-needed aid, the number of people going hungry is expected to rise. Working with local, ACT Alliance church partners and directly through the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan, UnitingWorld is supporting the delivery of vital food supplies, nutrition supplements and water purification tablets to children and families desperately in need.


Gifts of $2 or more to Relief and Development emergency appeals are tax deductible. In the event that funds raised exceed the amount required to meet the needs of the Africa famine response, UnitingWorld will use the excess funds to help people involved in similar Relief and Development projects.
