The Children of South Sudan
The War started in December of 2013 and continues to alter everyday life in South Sudan. The fighting has displaced an average of 1 million citizens and has killed over 10 thousand and counting. 70,000 South Sudanese civilians have fled the country either voluntarily or forced.
There is a population of approximately 11.4 million people living in South Sudan. In fact, 4 million of these citizens are encountering starvation. That is over 1/3 of the population!
