South Sudan

Prayer for South Sudan

Jul 9, 2017
Day of Independence
South Sudan gained independence from Sudan on July 9, 2011 as the outcome of a 2005 peace agreement that ended Africa's longest-running civil war. Independence did not bring conflict in South Sudan to an end. Currently, more than 3.5 million people have been displaced and 7.5 million need emergency aid as a result of South Sudan’s three-year-old civil conflict. Oil revenues have declined, farming and business activities have halted in many areas, and inflation has soared.
