With decades of tribal violence and political unrest, there are many suffering in South Sudan.

South Sudanese partner, Vicky Waraka, helps the hurting with Gospel counseling, and often, additional training in Biblical finance and business. We help her provide a small loan which they can use as seed money to buy supplies and start a micro-business, providing stability for their families.
