Country Info

CARE has been operating in Southern Sudan since 1993, initially providing humanitarian relief to internally displaced people in Western Equatoria. The signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in 2005 allowed CARE to expand into Jonglei State and Upper Nile to target the returnees from the refugee camps. The Upper Nile is one of the areas most affected by the civil war with many displaced people and disrupted livelihoods.
