Staff Evacuated After Heavy Gunfire in Wau Town
June 27, 2016 (WAU, SOUTH SUDAN) – World Concern, a Seattle-based Christian humanitarian organization, has suspended activity and evacuated staff from Wau, South Sudan, after fighting erupted in the city on June 24 and 25.
In December 2013, the world’s newest nation, only two years into a season without war, plunged back into crisis-mode. Though the explanation for this eruption of conflict is far from definitive, one thing is clear – South Sudan is still hurting.
Nine months pregnant and carrying her 2-year-old in her arms, Mary ran from her home in Unity State, South Sudan, where widespread violence has killed and injured thousands of people since December.
“Both of my neighbors were killed when we were running. My uncle was also killed,” said Mary. “When we were fleeing, my husband’s brother was shot. So my husband carried him to hospital. They are now in another IDP camp. There is also a woman I know who has lost her son. When we were being collected in the truck, the boy was left behind…”

October 14, 2013 (SEATTLE, Wash.) – World Concern staff members in Kuajok, South Sudan, were victims of an armed robbery on Thursday, October 10, 2013. The incident took place at around 8:30 p.m. as seven armed men scaled the wall of the World Concern compound and entered the office where staff and several visitors were working.
December 21, 2012 (JUBA, South Sudan) – Expat staff members of the humanitarian aid organization World Concern have left the town of Wau, in South Sudan’s Western Bahr El Ghazal state, following recent outbreaks of violence between tribes in the area.

World Concern reaches displaced, hungry families
April 19, 2012 (Raga, South Sudan) – Humanitarian aid organization World Concern temporarily suspended work in Raga County, South Sudan, this week because of clashes between the militaries of Sudan and South Sudan near the border.
Nutributter® Distribution Will Reach 7,800 Infants and Toddlers
April 10, 2012 (WAU, South Sudan) – A shipment of 39 metric tons of life-saving Nutributter® has arrived in Wau, South Sudan. Humanitarian aid organization World Concern will distribute the peanut-based ready-to-eat food supplement to 7,800 children, ages 6 to 24 months, to help prevent malnutrition and stunting.
Less than 25% of children in South Sudan are in school. Of those, more than 80% are in temporary shelters.
The area around the village of Kuajok has been especially hard hit by the poverty and desperation of new arrivals from the north, coming with little to no resources. One impact has been a large influx of children in need of schooling. In their classes, which meet under trees, 30 teachers try to manage 3,000 multi-level students. Without the structure of a classroom, teachers have difficulty keeping order and the children’s attention.

I visited a classroom in South Sudan today unlike anything I experienced as a child. For some of the class time, the elementary-aged students met in a circle under a tree. With a song, they learned about the importance of hand-washing. And to make it fun, it was combined with something like duck-duck-goose. So there was some chasing and screaming involved … and that always keeps kids interested.

The birthday party is officially over, and now the Republic of South Sudan has a lot of growing up to do. After three days of celebration and festivities, today the people of the new nation have to face the reality of a very difficult uphill climb. The Comprehensive Peace Agreement, which culminated in secession this weekend, was a six-year “peace” that involved almost daily fighting. This followed a 20-year war with more than 2 million casualties.
