As fighting in Jonglei State forces 180,000 people from their homes, CAFOD is continuing to support families whose lives have been torn apart by war.

Recent clashes in the troubled South Sudanese state of Jonglei have forced an estimated 180,000 people to flee their homes. With some towns almost completely abandoned, many families are thought to be taking refuge in forests and scrubland, surviving off wild leaves and fruit. Others have fled to Juba, the capital of South Sudan, or crossed into Ethiopia, Kenya or Uganda as refugees.
