The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is asking for help to ease severe famine in South Sudan. Here is a statement from the ELCA. More information can be found at elca.org.
“Right now, more than seven million people need humanitarian assistance in South Sudan. The ELCA is poised to respond to this need. Through our longstanding 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.
