ADRA South Sudan
Serving the local population since 1994
As the newest and least developed nation in Africa, South Sudan suffers from a lack of basic infrastructure, low standards of sanitation, and restricted access to education. ADRA South Sudan implements projects that further the development of the nation while providing emergency relief amid the IDP crisis. In accordance with this mission, we focus on primary health care, education, and disaster relief.Make a difference around the world
Did You Know?
Following the displacement crisis of 2013, we provided relief to 25,000 IDPs in the form of boreholes, latrines, and water purification tablets.
To date, 65 community-based water committees have been trained to better maintain and regulate water access.
Capacity Statement OverviewWith the recent increase in internal displacement, sanitation and hygiene have suffered. This IDP crisis creates an environment rife with infection and disease. ADRA South Sudan has developed an initiative to combat these conditions by training children using the Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation program. Along with the knowledge and training, these children and their families have been provided with better access to clean water and latrines. Since 2010, ADRA South Sudan has drilled 51 boreholes and repaired 53, constructed 63 permanent latrines and 274 emergency latrines, and trained 65 water committees.

Country OverviewThe world’s youngest nation, South Sudan is also one of the least developed. Though there exists immense oil wealth, complications with Sudan ensure that the average citizen sees little or none of the money. Governmental power struggles in December 2013 reduced South Sudan to chaos, killing thousands and displacing more than 800,000. Additionally, recent droughts have threatened the country’s food supplies.
