Samaritan's Purse reports on efforts in South Sudan

March 10, 2014

The South lost about 2 ½ million people during more than two decades of violence from the North. South Sudan successfully seceded in 2011 but violence continues in tribal conflicts. Citing United Nations reports, Ken Isaacs, vice president of Samaritan's Purse, says more than 900,000 people have been displaced by fighting that started last December. Approximately 200,000 of those refugees have sought refuge in nearby foreign countries.
