Archbishop Paulino Lukudu Loro Makes Urgent Plea to Help South Sudan

On the fifth anniversary of its independence, violence once again erupted in South Sudan between opposing factions, continuing the country’s on-going civil war. Since violence first broke out in December 2013, 1.6 million people are now internally displaced and more than 600,000 people have entered neighboring countries as refugees.
