URGENT: Extreme flood crisis in South Sudan

Last year, people like you supported 14,989 people in Jonglei State,
and gave emergency aid to 28,085 people in Magwi County
where crops were wiped out by locusts.

This good work is now threatened by severe floods.

Find out how YOUR Christmas Action gift can help.

Lost homes, lost hope

Your frontline Lutheran-supported team report that 800,000 people have been forced from their homes.

One victim, Grandma Akuol, told your team:

“I have been trying to put a dyke around my home, but I am exhausted given my age. I have lost hope.”

Grandma Akuol is looking after two grandchildren, after their mother died giving birth. Children and the elderly are among those in greatest danger.

That’s why, on your behalf, ALWS has launched an emergency response - and the good news is your donation will be DOUBLED!

A Lutheran couple from Queensland have offered to match dollar for dollar all South Sudan donations this Christmas, up to $250,000!

Our Lutheran aim is to help 4,816 families. Read on to find out how you can help one family for $111 with a Family Flood Kit...

Yom Biar Riak's story

“I don’t have any money. I had goats, but they have died because of this flooding. My children can’t go to school because I have lost my livestock. I can’t afford their school fees and food at the same time. I have settled for food. You are our only hope in these dark days of our lives. Please come to our rescue. You are our Jesus."
