Feed the Hungry in Ganyiel, Sudan
Organized by: Teri Hayes
If anyone asks you where Ganyiel is or to pinpoint it on a map, you probably won't be able to tell where it is. Most people won't. But that doesn't matter right now. What matters is you know that Ganyiel needs our help.
Ganyiel is a village in the state of Unity in South Sudan. Like most villages in that region, it is cut off from the rest of the country by bad roads and a poor transportation system. In the rainy season, the village gets isolated even further by destructive flooding; in 2014 alone, the flooding has wiped out the livestock and destroyed the crops in the region. Hunger is now prevalent in the region, with 32% of its children severely malnourished, 15% of which are in critical condition. The situation is made a lot worse by the fact that Sudan is torn by civil war.
The World Food Programme and other NGOs are doing their best to alleviate the hunger situation in that part of Africa. But they can't do the job alone. They need funding and support. That's why I am asking for donations to the WFP to support their work in helping Ganyiel and other towns in the region find a way through its food crisis. Ganyiel really needs our help right now.
