Gunfire has quieted in South Sudan, but the terror is far from over. Once again, the dead lie in the streets. Once again, terror grips the city as food and water runs short and looters strike. Once again, starving people rush to cross the border into Uganda before the last of the roads and borders are closed.
On July 7th, just two days before the country’s 5th birthday, a clash between forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and forces standing with Vice President Reik Machar erupted just outside the capital city of Juba. The fighting continued for days, but finally died off after Kiir and Machar called for a ceasefire. But by then, hundreds had been killed and Juba lay in shambles–once again.
Once again, the desperate people are calling out to God, praying that the ceasefire will hold and that help will arrive soon. Once again, the people of South Sudan are crying out for peace.
And once again, you can help. Partners International is sending relief funds, but they badly need support. To give, click this link: https://www.partnersintl.org/product/south-sudan-relief/
