Overview

Samaritan’s Purse is rushing food aid into southern Sudan. Hundreds of thousands of men, women, children, and newborns who have fled violent conflict in the north are now confronted with a faceless enemy: starvation.

The remote region of Kordofan, Sudan, has swelled in population since conflict broke out in the country a year ago. This deeply impoverished area saw an influx of 700,000 desperate people looking for refuge, amplifying the population’s already dire food situation.

To worsen the crisis, the most recent harvest of sorghum—the region’s staple—was devastated by drought and swarms of locusts, which eliminated 40 percent of their usual food supply. With nowhere to turn, people rummage the muddy ground and barren trees for seeds, weeds, branches, and leaves to consume.

Samaritan’s Purse is sending truckloads of food and shelter supplies to the people of the Kordofan region in Jesus’ Name.
