Because of this, people from the Nuba Mountains joined the South in the long civil war against the North, gaining themselves a powerful enemy that has retaliated with “genocide,” some say.
As a result of the civil war, the number of internally displaced people living in camps in this area is already significant. The United Nations estimates that at least 60,000 people have been forced to flee the camps.
Now they have no food, shelter, or medical assistance. Some are hiding in caves. Some have fled to the North. Kadugli, the capital of Southern Kordofan State, is almost entirely deserted, yet there are no formal relief camps set up to serve these twice-displaced people.
In the midst of this turmoil, our partner Africa Inland Church-Sudan is working to provide relief supplies to families who have fled the unrest.
“The people who have been displaced by the war have lost houses and belongings and are living in an exposed situation, at the mercy of nature,” said our partner Rev. John. “The children, mothers, and elderly are the most miserable and vulnerable due to lack of food and the effects of water-borne disease.”
Relief items for one person cost £8 and will be distributed by a team of 30 AIC staff in the name and love of Christ.
Please pray for God’s protection and provision for the people of the Nuba Mountains and for AIC as they reach out with Christ’s love. Please also consider giving financially to AIC's relief work.
The displaced people in Sudan's Nuba mountains will be extremely grateful for any help you can give. Would you consider a gift today?
