Children are Dying Now - Famine Declared in South Sudan

More Than 1 Million Children in South Sudan Face Starvation
DONATE NOW
Dear Olivier,
Famine is not a word I use lightly, but it is a word I am using today.
Children in South Sudan are already dying at an alarming rate, and more than 1 million girls and boys are on the brink of starvation.

A lethal combination of conflict and mass displacement has created a critical food shortage across the nation, and three years of brutal war have left a population with no way to cope. The situation is made even worse by the spread of cholera and major economic collapse.

South Sudan’s Children Need Your Help.
PLEASE MAKE A DONATION IN ANY AMOUNT
$50 $50 $50
$50 $100 $50
$50 $250 $50
$50 $500 $50
$50 Other $50
Olivier, as I sit down to dinner with my family, I can only imagine what it must be like not being able to put food — any food — on the table. What it must be like to be a mother watching her children waste away before her eyes.

In 2011, over 250,000 people in Somalia died because the world didn’t respond to famine alerts — until it was too late. WE CANNOT AND WILL NOT LET THAT HAPPEN AGAIN.

Save the Children is on the ground in South Sudan, providing lifesaving support to children. We’re also working with farmers whose crops have been destroyed by war to help them secure a safer future for their children.
But we can’t do it alone. Our South Sudan Country Director Pete Walsh warns that failure to act now will surely spell catastrophe. Please help.
My most sincere thanks,
Carolyn Miles
