While some come close, no area is ever 100% in the midst of war. There will be regions where survivors have gone to take refuge, and villages that are putting the pieces back together after the bombings and attacks.

So there is always something you can do to help.

In areas of heavy conflict, where every family has a horror story, it is often the women and children who are now charged with protecting the families with devastated resources, or who now remain to rebuild.  Women for Women International is on the ground in South Sudan helping them do just that.
