What your support achieves – throughout the world

South Sudan

"We were afraid of each other"

For years a civil war raged in South Sudan. On paper, peace was sealed in autumn 2018. But it has by no means reached the population. People are still suffering from the brutal attacks caused by opposing ethnic groups. Many people have lost their families. Their homes have been looted and burned. Everyone is afraid of each other. The peace activists Elizabeth Nyayuk and Elizabeth Deng want to reunite the people of South Sudan. The two women belong to hostile groups but are nonetheless friends. Together with the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan (PCOSS), partner of Mission 21, they help people - no matter what ethnic group - with relief goods and psychological support.
