Since the conflict began in 2013, violence and war have been constant and, now, hunger is increasing more and more.

“Hunger is too much. We only have one meal per day if we are lucky, mainly wild fruits”, explains Mary, 23 years old. The young woman suffers from a disability that sometimes has ocasioned some dificulties in order to have access to food distribution. (You can check more testimonials here).

sjes-acnurIn front of this situation, this August the customers of Ticketmaster will collaborate with the Spanish Committee of UNHCR in order to provide humanitarian aid and food in South Sudan and alleviate the hunger suffered, especially in the case of children.

How to collaborate

For several months ago, Ticketmaster customers can make their micro-contribution and add 1 euro solidarity to their entry. Once your ticket is selected and in the final phase of the purchase process, you can add a euro to your basket and show your commitment; in this case, with UNHCR.

Through all the euros collected, the Spanish Committee of UNHCR will be able to distribute the necessary supplementary food to treat 500 children and families suffering from severe malnutrition in South Sudan.
