Save the Children Aid for South Sudan

A special Save the Children flight arrives in South Sudan today, Dec. 24, carrying supplies for families who have fled their homes due to fighting.

These supplies will be used to help alleviate the conditions of those families seeking safety in United Nations compounds in Juba and include: 150 jerry cans, kitchen sets for 140 families, 140 waterproof sheets, and two large water bladders that each hold 5,000 liters.

The one metric ton of supplies will add to those supplies already warehoused by Save the Children in South Sudan. The flight is taking off from Nairobi and is scheduled to arrive in Juba, South Sudan, Tuesday morning.

Save the Children, which has been working in South Sudan for more than three decades, has maintained essential staff there in order to meet the humanitarian needs of children in the country.

Save the Children is a leading independent organization for children in need, with programs in 120 countries, including the United States.
