Our people are struggling simply to survive"- in a powerful pastoral letter, the Bishops of South Sudan have expressed a desperate plea for support.
United Nations agencies recently declared famine in parts of South Sudan and it’s a famine that is likely to spread. Caritas Australia’s CEO, Paul O’Callaghan said without concerted political and community action, there is the risk of famine spreading across the region.
Three years ago today was a time of cautious rejoicing – South Sudan had gained its independence, and the world’s newest nation was born. The event flagged a time of hope and anticipation after four decades of civil war and fighting. Despite the many challenges they faced in building a new nation, the people of South Sudan had a positive attitude.
Three years later, the situation is a stark contrast to this hope and optimism. There is unrest throughout the country, and hundreds of thousands of people are displaced, fleeing from conflict.
Caritas Australia is working through its international network to alleviate suffering in South Sudan, the world’s newest country, where thousands have been forced to abandon their homes following fighting during a so-called ceasefire.
According to reports in the Catholic media, large sections of Unity, Upper Nile and Jonglei States in South Sudan have been abandoned, as residents and members of the church flee south in a desperate bid to escape the violence and terror.
