There is so much going on in Southern Sudan Now

Susan D. Lintz

Southern Sudan is celebrating the results of its vote to secede from the North. More importantly, it is celebrating the North's acceptance of the results! They will celebrate their new country's independence day on July 9, 2011.

Southern Sudan will have years of building and development ahead of it. Foremost on the list will be basic services including healthcare, schools, water and sanitation (over 80% of the people in the south have no toilet facilities), food security in the way of development of self-reliance in agricultural production, communications including roads and transportation. The removal of our US sanctions will help the South to develop.

Southern Sudan Mission is here to be a voice for those who have had no voice for so long. Our mission field is Aweil County of the state of North Bahr El Ghazal. These maps show the food insecurity of North Bahr El Ghazal State and the infant mortality rate as well:

 

It is very remote here, and difficult to get supplies and assistance to. But that is what we at Southern Sudan Mission are here for! Please help ~ we provide educational assistance and help in the delivery of medical assistance to these folks in a time of transition.
