Volunteer South Sudan

It says a lot about a country when its becomes independent and is welcomed into the world community as its newest nation then, within a year, aid and volunteer agencies are fleeing the country due to an outbreak of factionalised violence as they are unable to guarantee the safety of their staff or volunteers. And that violence continues.

The largely Christian South Sudan broke from what it saw as its oppressive Muslim neighbour, Sudan, and it looked for a while that it would be joining a democratic community of nations. It was not to be as those seeking power in the new country disregarded the impact that struggle would have on its own people who 

had for so long sought to shake off oppression from the north only to have it reimposed by their own in the south together with violence, displacement and crime. Its a bleak situation.  Totally reliant on oil production and exports to survive, not only do these exports have to be transported through the hostile north on the agreement of Sudan, they are likely to be depleted within the next 30-40 years; only 4% of South Sudan is arable however 85% of the population are reliant upon it for subsistence farming and teachers in South Sudan have fled seeking employment elsewhere leaving the education system in disarray. Add to that outbreaks of disease such as cholera and the full bleakness of the situation becomes apparent.

It will therefore come as no surprise that at present the opportunity to volunteer in South Sudan is pretty much limited to the Red Cross who stay after others have left. If you run or know of a volunteer work project in South Sudan let us know by contacting us here. We look forward to hearing from you!
