Human Rights for Sudanese Refugees

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,

T

    Oh dear T I just can’t watch anymore, how God must grieve to see His Children suffering so much ,do we really understand the horror that these people live with day by day.

    As The Body of Christ, we are Jesus, Hands, Arms, Feet, and voice in this hurting world to reach out with His Love and compassion, yes with needed physical care such as food and clothes but also Spiritual Food that will last for Eternity both go together, both are needed, if we don’t supply them they will continue to be destitute but the good news is God is reaching out…Thank you T

    Christian Love from us both – Anne

    This is sad, but the key thing is despite their plight they are still able to smile, the richer people get the more miserable they become, Sin entered the world through Adam and Eve, and once we accept this it makes looking at world suffering easier, oneday there will be no more pain or suffering…these videos always makes me sad. It’s usually the poorer people that want to help, I look at the music industry and wander how the human race is still so selfish. Incredible…when so many poor people are suffering. I guess I can’t judge though.
