Urgent need: South Sudan famine relief

Note: The government of Canada will match donations for famine relief through 30 June 2017!


South Sudan famineThe South Sudanese – already desperately poor and struggling to survive in the midst of a three-year civil war – are facing famine. Many have had to flee their homes searching for safety. Others, who have stayed behind haven't been able to plant their crops due to the war. The warring government and rebel forces which have created this terrible situation have been preventing humanitarian aid from reaching those most in need. Now the international community is beginning to take note and stepping in to try to restore peace and order and get food and supplies to the starving.

With our strong relationship with the South Sudan Episcopal Church, we are able to send aid directly to where the famine is most severe to support their work of feeding and caring for those who need it most. 

In 2015, ARDFC raised funds to drill 3 deep water wells in partnership with the Diocese of Wau.  Recently, Bishop Moses Deng (Diocese of Wau) wrote saying that starving refugees were literally dying on his doorstep. He had spent all his diocese's resources feeding these refugees and was now going into debt to get food from local merchants.  So we are partnering with Bishop Moses and the Diocese of Wau to send funds to purchase food for these precious people who have been victimized first by war and now by famine.

Please help the people of South Sudan.

Donations can be made through your church, online or by mailing your cheque to ARDFC, c/o Box 1013, Burlington, ON, L7R 4L8.
