In commemoration of South Sudan’s one-year independence anniversary this week, CRS and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops held a live web chat yesterday with four CRS experts on South Sudan, including two staff who currently live and work in Juba, South Sudan. If you missed the chat, you can read the full transcript for excellent answers to participants’ questions, such as:
- What role does the Church play in South Sudan, and how has it changed since independence?
- What is the US government doing to help South Sudan and Sudan coexist?
- What are the three biggest challenges facing South Sudan?
