In South Sudan, Rescue life of Children is working to support vulnerable children and families to stay together and survive one of the toughest Coronavirus lockdowns on earth.

Nearly four (4) months into the Pandemic, Children and families in South Sudan are,As all countries — rich and poor — struggle to cope with the immediate threats of the pandemic,“Children in South Sudan are suffering above all from the economic effects of the pandemic,”

The number of vulnerable people increases every hour in South Sudan. Weekly food-rations from Relief Organizations is not sufficient. People who were employed supporting their families, now have no jobs as a result of Coronavirus lockdown — no income and no access to state assistance in practical terms.

As part of the civil society committed to help the government uplift the lives of the children and the youth especially at this point of our nation’s health crisis, we can only take the road forward investing for the children’s protection and better future.Our effort to disseminate Covid-19 Prevention information has seen people deep in the village understand the need to Wash hands regularly, Practise social distance and wear masks, but there is still a challenge for most of the population to access Basic materials towards preventing Covid-19.

There are no preventive equipments Masks, Water and sanitation infrastructure is dilapilated.

The virus has exacerbated the ongoing humanitarian crisis around health infrastructure, economy, livelihoods and water, sanitation and poor hygiene,hence the need to take a door to door Awareness approach.

Awareness raising and learning how to stop the spread of the virus is done with each beneficiary or target group, and the ways we do this are also adapted to protect each person from the virus.
