South Sudan: Coordinating a Response in the Midst of Disaster

Posted on February 27, 2012 by Matthew Ley

A new article from the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) looks at the violence in South Sudan from the perspective of Michael Mading, the LWF South Sudan Emergency Coordinator. It walks through how he has gone about coordinating and implementing the LWF’s response and gives a good description of what disaster response looks like in the field. It also introduces us to Michael and why he is doing the work he is doing. It’s a good read, giving a perspective we don’t usually have access to. If you have a few minutes, I’d recommend giving it a look.
