All We Can and the World Church Relationships Team ofthe Methodist Church in Britain are calling for support forthis urgent appeal to respond to immediate needs inSouth Sudan and to help avert famine in other countries on theverge of disaster.

Protracted civil conflicts, entrenched economic crises, droughtsand unpredictable rainfall have led to widespread food insecurityacross East Africa and beyond. On 20 February 2017 it was announcedthat South Sudan had reached tipping point with two counties beingdeclared as officially affected by famine.

The Methodist Church in Britain isurging people to respond quickly, generously and collectively tothis  catastrophic situation by supportingthe appeal being managed by All We Can. Withouturgent support, many communities across the region face the threatof famine in 2017.

All We Can's Humanitarian Aid Manager Jason Snuggs said:

"This situation is incredibly serious, it is not one wecan ignore. We need supporters to give generously and without delayso we can respond to the need in South Sudan and help towardsaverting famine in other countries on the verge ofdisaster."

All We Can will be working with its international humanitarianaid partners to respond to the immediate urgent needs in SouthSudan and if enough money is raised will extend this support toneighbouring countries already at high-risk of famine. Malnutritionis widespread, in some countries water is scarce and the need forlifesaving aid; food, water and sanitation, is critical.

Your support can save lives. Pleasegive.  Do all you can.
