Right now, more than seven million people need humanitarian assistance in South Sudan because of the ravages of civil war, drought, and government instability. The ELCA is poised to respond to this need. Through our long-standing relationships in the region, we are prepared to accompany communities through food distribution, water and sanitation, and psychosocial support.
Your gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response are critical to implementing this work. Together, we can provide life-saving aid to our brothers and sisters in South Sudan when they need it most. Because the ELCA covers all administrative costs, every dollar that you give will go to direct relief assistance. Give through your offering to St. John’s (mark “South Sudan Relief”) or give directly to LDR by googling “Lutheran Disaster Response.”
