Urge Increased Humanitarian Assistance for the People of South Sudan

Tens of thousands of people have been displaced by the recent outbreak of violence in South Sudan. 

The fighting began in the capital city of Juba between rival factions  on July 8th.  While a fragile ceasefire has been in place since July 12th, many are in dire need of humanitarian assistance.  The United Nations estimates that nearly 40,000 people have been displaced during this crisis.  At least 7,000 of them took refuge in different churches or parishes.   To make matters worse, the central warehouse of the United Nations World Food Programme has been looted.  The warehouse held one month's worth of life-saving food and nutrition supplies for 220,000 people.

The people of South Sudan are pleading for help.  The Archbishop Paulino Lukudu Loro said, “our situation is very difficult.  If there is anyone at all that can help us, this is the moment to save lives.  If the people of Juba and of South Sudan do not receive assistance a lot of us will die."

Please urge the Obama administration to do everything it possibly can to get lifesaving humanitarian assistance to those in need in South Sudan.
