Medair has worked in South Sudan since 1992 and is one of the most active humanitarian relief organizations in the country.

Since the end of 2013, conflict has devastated millions of lives. Alarming levels of malnutrition are seen across the country, with rates higher than anywhere else in the world. Families have been uprooted. There are disease outbreaks and limited access to safe water. Women have few places to safely give birth. Hundreds of thousands of lives are at risk.

This is where we come in.


How We Help

Emergency Response

Medair responds to sudden emergencies like floods, disease outbreaks, high levels of malnutrition, and mass displacement across the entire country. We have teams of experts in health, nutrition, hygiene, safe water, sanitation, shelter, and distribution of essential supplies who are able to respond quickly and bring swift relief to hundreds of thousands of people across the country each year.


Health and Nutrition

When emergencies turn into longer lasting crises, Medair stays to support existing or establish new clinics, and to strengthen local health services. We also run nutrition programming to treat malnourished children, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers.

Water, Sanitation & Hygiene

Medair works in vulnerable areas to ensure people have access to safe drinking water and hygienic sanitation facilities, and improve their hygiene practices.
