The Conflict in South Sudan

Imagine armed rebels invading your local hospital and assassinating patients right in their beds… raping and killing people in their homes and places of worship… burning dwellings after stealing anything of value. For the community of Bor in South Sudan, this nightmarish scenario recently became reality. Those who managed to survive the invasion fled by the thousands to overcrowded refugee camps or hid in the bush or on a river, creating a massive human needs crisis.
