South Sudan gained independence in 2011, but it has suffered internal conflict ever since. Despite ongoing peace efforts, the situation in South Sudan has continued to escalate with over 100,000 people being internally displaced, and many more seeking refuge in Uganda.

  • For lasting peace between warring groups and for protection for innocent civilians
  • That the gospel will spread despite persecution of Christians
  • For increased support to feed the thousands of refugees fleeing into Uganda
