Samaritan’s Purse is providing much-needed assistance in East Africa and is continuing to meet urgent needs as a food and refugee crisis impacts millions of lives.
Africa’s refugee crisis is growing rapidly as a civil war and famine in South Sudan have forced more than 1.6 million people so far to flee. At least 1 million South Sudanese refugees are now in Uganda.
Uganda’s Bidibidi Refugee Settlement is the second-largest in the world, housing 286,000 people from South Sudan. Samaritan’s Purse is drilling deep borehole water wells, building communal and household latrines, and providing seeds and agriculture tools as well as providing opportunities for refugees.
Our programs in other east African countries such as Kenya and Ethiopia also benefit thousands of families in need of safe water and opportunities to generate income to improve food security.
Your financial support and prayers are urgently needed for us to continue ministering in Jesus’ Name to those suffering through these trials in East Africa as we seek to provide life-saving assistance, a future and hope.
