South Sudan

In 2001, Food for the Hungry started emergency relief work in South Sudan. Since that time, the country has gone through many changes, including establishing its independence on July 9, 2011. The war torn country is working to rebuild its communities and markets. FH is working with communities to increase farming, income, education and water access.
