South Sudan is undergoing another famine, forcing the government to declare a national disaster.
Since the summer of 2016 SSAERF has been working with the Aliab Diocese of the ECS Episcopal Church of Sudan, Africa and various community agencies in response to multiple out breaks of communicable diseases in the war torn country of South Sudan. These communicable diseases include cholera, malaria, measles and kala-azar, with Cholera, taking its largest toll on the children who are already suffering from lack of clean water, starvation, homelessness and lack of prevention information.
The humanitarian situation in South Sudan and East Africa is rapidly deteriorating children are dying today from starvation, cholera and associated diseases. Millions more people are reported to be on the brink of famine. According to the United Nations (UN), an unprecedented number of simultaneous, severe hunger and nutrition crises are placing an estimated 19.3 million people at risk of starvation across this region. The situation in South Sudan is catastrophic; the government and the UN have declared a famine in conflict-ravaged Unity State. This means people have already started dying of hunger. There are legitimate fears that the crisis could spread to 5.5 million households by July, due to a lethal combination of civil war, mass displacement and little to no food production.
An estimated 742,000 South Sudanese refugees have already fled to other areas in search of food and water and to escape conflict. Complicating the situation is the rapid spread of cholera in drought-affected areas. Since the beginning of January 2017 alone, there has been more than 9,500 cases and 237 deaths numbers that are likely to be significantly higher given the remote locations of the cholera outbreak. Of these known cases, over one-third were children under age 5, and 110 cases occurred recently over 48 hours in one region alone. The cholera outbreak poses an immediate risk to an estimated 363,000 children who are already suffering from malnutrition and could rise to 944,000 cases this year unless urgent aid is provided.

The primary challenge faced by the rural Aliab community in the South Sudan is the
lack of a safe, fully equipped and staffed permanent school building, which we are
currently planning. The one currently in use is outdoors, with the children sitting on the
wet, muddy ground with limited volunteer staff. During the Village’s rainy season the
children have no dry place to attend classes. Our other challenges are obtaining
school supplies and locating trained school teachers. Most of the current financial aid
and social services provided to the South Sudan is available only in the Eastern and
Southern parts of the country. Services are not available for the poor, rural people of the
South and Central Sudan, along the river where the extremely poor Aliab community
