Flooding worsens in South Sudan; Bishop asks for help

While rains have been abundant, clean, potable water is hard to come by in South Sudan, leaving people vulnerable to disease.

In 2020 Sudan was hit with the most devastating flooding in over a century.  This year, the trend continued, with over 80,000 people in South Sudan displaced or affected since the start of the rainy season in July. ACC Bishop Wilson Garang reports that there is an urgent need for assistance within his diocese for medicine, food, and shelter. He notes that many people are getting sick or dying as a result of water-borne diseases, snake bites, or malaria. The flooding has forced people to move out of their houses and onto the roadsides or into the compounds around schools. Those who wish to donate to South Sudan flood relief are encouraged to do so through the Saint Paul Mission Society.
