Right now, children are starving to death in South Sudan.


This is the first time famine has been declared anywhere in the world in the last six years. And this terrible famine will spread quickly to nearby countries if we don’t act now. 

One million people could die of hunger without urgent aid. And it’s the children who are suffering most. 

Please will you give an urgent gift today to prevent more families dying from starvation? 

Act for Peace’s partners are already on the ground distributing emergency food and water supplies and providing other lifesaving support.

But the scale of the crisis is truly staggering, and there’s just not enough money to meet the need. 

Together, we can prevent the worst of this crisis - but only if we all play our part.
