Have you ever been so heart broken about something that you can not find the words to say what you feel you need to say? That is how I felt after watching this video…
It’s so heartbreaking that something like this is happening in our world.
Because South Sudan’s president, Omar al-Bashir still continues to attack his own citizens, 190,000 people have fled across the border to Northern South Sudan where they are now living in refugee camps. People still pour into the camps daily, traveling for days without food and water, barefoot and sick. Many never make it, they die and are buried along the way. Thousands of children arrive in the camps with severe acute malnutrition. Medical care in the area is scarce. Access the clean water, lack of sanitation and hygiene are huge challenges.
Today is blog action day. Today myself and thousands of other bloggers around the world are teaming up with Samaritan’s purse to try to help raise awareness of this ongoing crises in South Sudan. Samaritan’s purse is making a difference. They are making a difference by working with partners inside the refugee camps helping to bring basic needs to those who are now living inside these camps. The needs include food, water, medical care and the love of Jesus Christ.
To see what is being done to help those inside the refugee camps please watch this video.
Today I am asking YOU for your help.
Today I am asking you to:
- Pray for the violence to end and peace for all of Sudan.
- Give as God calls you to help the displaced people of South Sudan.
- Help us spread the word and raise awareness by asking others to get involved. You can write a blog about the crises in South Sudan or if you would like you may share this blog of any of the links listed below.
You may feel like a tiny whisper in a huge world but together we can speak loudly and make our voices heard.
Together we CAN make a difference.
Thank you for reading and thank you for helping the people of South Sudan,
