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.
MARCH OF THE RESCUED
A MISSION TO SAVE 50 CHILDREN IN THE NUBA MOUNTAINS
FROM STARVATION AND MARGINALIZATION
OUT OF CRISIS AND CONFLICT & INTO THE HOPE OF NEW LIFE
WILL YOU JOIN US?
Last year YOU made Feed Nuba February possible in the Nuba Mountains. Against the odds, we were able to distribute nearly 60,000 lbs. of sorghum and 700 BP-5 Emergency Food biscuits across four extraordinarily marginalized villages.
While the mission was successful, many children still faced imminent death due to severe malnutrition. We began coordinating with local leadership to have fifty of those children evacuated. The community selected the children and, with military accompaniment, those fragile little lives embarked on an eleven day journey on foot to safety.
They survived and are now thriving. They are in a secure location in the region where they receive food, shelter, education and the love of Jesus. While we celebrate this, there are still hundreds of thousands of children still in need in Nuba.
We are on a mission to rescue 50 more children in difficult-to-reach places in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan from starvation and marginalization.
Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
We invite you to pray. Pray for our team led by Jake Fuller that will be traveling to the Nuba Mountains on March 7. For peace, freedom and restoration to permeate the war-weary land and people. For the leaders to exercise their authority with wisdom and justice. For these fifty and the hundreds of thousands of other children throughout the region to have access to food, medical attention, clothing and education. And for the love, hope, and truth of Jesus to reach the hardest-to-reach.
