Solidarity with South Sudan

Solidarity with South Sudan is a new model of ministry and collaboration among women and men religious and the laity in serving the poor.

An initiative of the International Union of Superiors General (UISG) and the Union of Superiors General (USG), it was born in response to a request from the Catholic Bishops of Sudan.

Its mission is to develop leaders, and to build the capacity of people in South Sudan to be teachers, health care professionals, sustainable farmers, and diocesan pastoral agents.

The organization is supported by Catholic religious congregations around the world, as well as by foundations and individuals who share our vision to build a more just and peaceful society.

Life in South Sudan now

Life in South Sudan is both challenging and rewarding.

The challenges are the result of years of civil war, famines and, most recently, the Covid-19 pandemic. Lack of infrastructures, food insecurity and internal displacement, make everyday life both an adventure and a study in survival.

The rewards come in the form of the South Sudanese people. Their resilience is inspiring, and their generosity is an example to us all. They are eager to improve their lives and those of their children, and to contribute to building their nation.
