Bentiu, November 3, 2023 (SSNA) — A nondenominational evangelical Christian organization, Samaritan’s Purse, is helping South Sudan’s Unity State struggling families grow their own food.

The agency helps families learn “economic practice” through what it described as “its village savings and loans association and income-generating activities programs.”

Nyalong, one of the women leaders in her village explains her satisfaction with the program.

“I established my kitchen garden, and now my family enjoys fresh vegetables,” she told the Samaritan’s Purse, adding, “I sell the excess vegetables that we don’t eat, and it is helping me to make money to raise my children, pay their school fees, and have put some money towards building my small business for my home and future planning.”

The group says it assists families who live in chronic poverty and malnutrition and lack the skills needed to get the most out of their lands.

Samaritan’s Purse is a United States-based nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world, according to its website.
