SOUTH SUDAN RELIEF
For the past five years, we've partnered with Samaritan's Purse to match our Christmas giving 1:1. i.e. "What I spend on gifts, I give to the Sudan Project." Your generosity provides meals for more than 300k hungry and displaced people each month. This is a 24/7 operation and Samaritan's Purse is one of very few organizations on the ground in South Sudan. Because of your generosity, $13,696 was raised in 2016 which was enough to provide meals for 125 children for one year.

July 9th marked the sixth anniversary of South Sudan’s independence, but it was the second year in a row that the government cancelled official celebrations due to the country’s ongoing crisis. Although famine levels have been downgraded to the Emergency level, six million people (50% of the population) are still experiencing severe food insecurity and an estimated 1.7 million remain on the brink of famine— the highest number to date.
