Civil War in South Sudan


On December 15, 2013, a civil war broke out in Jonglei, South Sudan, killing 500 people. Tragically, the death toll continues to rise and more than 62,000 people are now displaced.


The crisis prompted COE member Peter Deng, founder of Deng Opportunities Foundation, Inc., to launch DOF's Emergency Project. DOF's Emergency Project is reaching out to vulnerable families of South Sudan by providing hope with practical assistance. They offer a free minibus ride from Juba to Nimule town for safe access to food and water. They are also gathering funds to provide food, shelter, and clean water to the orphans of Jonglei.


Please consider helping with a donation. 100% of your donations go to DOF's Emergency Project.
