Urge your members of Congress to support supplemental funding request to address famine in South Sudan. 

South Sudan 02Recently, the United Nations and the government of South Sudan declared a state of famine in parts of South Sudan, the most severe state of food insecurity. According to the United Nations, 100,000 South Sudanese are facing imminent starvation, and millions more are on the brink of famine.

South Sudan has been experiencing a severe drought this year, which has caused massive crop failure. This has left many families without the ability to produce food for their own consumption or to sell in the market. Furthermore, the famine declaration comes as South Sudan continues to be embroiled in multiple armed conflicts that have left millions of people displaced and thousands killed or injured.

Our brothers and sisters in South Sudan need our support. Please take a moment to ask your members of Congress to support supplemental funding request to help address the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan.
