Overview and Welthungerhilfe`s work

On 9th July 2011 South Sudan formally separated from North Sudan and became a new state. Welthungerhilfe is around 20 posted and 100 local employees. Read more about our projects in South Sudan:

Welthungerhilfe has been working intermittently in Sudan since the 1990s. After the signing of the independence agreement the organisation had begun to supply returnees and the resident population in the state of Northern Bahr el-Ghazal with vital items and to support them in the building of accommodation. Today, the regional focus of Welthungerhilfe is on two parts of the country: Unity State, and Northern Bahr el-Ghazal. The coordination of the activities takes place out of the head office in Juba. Usually, there are around 20 posted and 100 local employees working for Welthungerhilfe in South Sudan. For security reasons, however, the team has been reduced to a minimum.
