We first attempted to enter the Nuba Mountains in 2014, but were shopped short of Sudan’s border at a place called Yida. At the time, Yida was populated by approximately 10,000 Nuban refugees.
We built relationships with the refugees there, and returned to facilitate mobile clinics and offer training for pastors in the camp. We were overjoyed at the ministry we had found in Yida, but we yearned to reach those trapped beyond the Sudanese border, so we prayed for an opportunity to reach the un-reached.
158 FAMILIES • 2 DAYS LEFT
During Sudan’s decades-long civil war, the Nuba people fought with the south for freedom from the Khartoum government. But when South Sudan received independence in 2011, Nuba was unable to secede from Sudan, leaving its people vulnerable and captive in a country whose government they had fought for independence from. Sudan's Khartoum government continues its campaign to starve out its own people—blocking much humanitarian aid, bombing crops and stores of food, and committing atrocities against the people.
They are in desperate need of basic necessities and humanitarian aid.
On March 4th, our team will travel to the Nuba Mountains to deliver an emergency relief shipment of food for 158 families to last until their harvest season in late August - early September.
