Crisis in South Sudan. PCPM helps children survive hunger

7 million population of South Sudan is affected by hunger at this moment. The aid organizations, which provide and distribute food from outside, bring mainly sorgo – dry food for adult people. PCPM is the only organization, which supports Nutrition Center in Gordhim and provides the food for children under five.

 

This is the country that has seen a war continuously for almost 30 years. The people have grown used to the state of war –  state where they have born at and have lived the entire life.  – says Chief Executive Officer of PCPM Wojtek Wilk.

In this one of the poorest country of the world people live in really basic conditions. The war in the South Sudan the was longest civil war in the whole Africa. Conflict made the economy of the entire country collapsed, causing famine. The majority of children in South Sudan suffer from malnutrition.

The Gordhim Nutrition Center was established in the Aweil East, area marked by the UN as emergency in 5 grade famine scale (after emergency only comes famine), due to the collaboration of PCPM and Arkangelo Ali Association (AAA).

Patients treatment was based on distributing high-protein meals, which were supposed to stop cachexia and make them recover from the state of starvation in two weeks. Although in the beginning the Center was only to help children under age of 5, the crisis scale forced doctors to take care of the adults too.

The support of Nutrition Center in Gordhim was possible thanks to Polish donors.
