In 2017, the Mothers' Union's Harvest Appeal drew attention to the suffering experienced by people displaced by the ongoing conflict in South Sudan, many of whom faced starvation as well as the constant threat of danger - it raised £31,280. Thanks to the generous donations of members and supporters like you, Mothers’ Union Community Worker, Mama Harriet was able to continue transporting food and other essential items to families in need. In contrast many other organisations had their supplies raided by militia and were prevented from distributing relief aid. Mama Harriet is well known in her community, and respected, which meant her work has continued uninterupted.
For 2018 we are pleased to update all supporters of the success in South Sudan following the work of members there, and are now looking to help those who had previously fled their homes to return and rebuild. Many who fled to neighbouring Uganda experienced projects like 'Eagle' (a pilot community development project launched by Mothers' Union) and want to bring it back to South Sudan with them.
Your help will enable our Community Workers to facilitate, support and develop this and many more like it around the world. Please CLICK HERE TO DONATE.
