South Sudan

Relief funding approved for SUDRA South Sudan

Mothers’ Union’s Relief Fund Committee has sent a grant of £25,000 to aid the humanitarian response of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan & Sudan to thousands of displaced people in South Sudan.

The funding will form part of the wider response of the Anglican Communion given to the local relief arm of the Church, SUDRA. This will be used to bring urgent food and medical aid to displaced families. A further grant of £25,000 has been agreed in principle by Mothers’ Union which the organisation hopes to source from outside its membership.
