Emergency Appeal

by Michael Ford last modified 06 Jul, 2020 10:32 AM

“I hope and pray we will be generous. Whatever you can give will be an encouragement and a source of hope as well as a practical help in the present crisis." - Bishop Nicholas

Our own problems with Covid-19 in this country are significant, but our brothers and sisters in South Sudan and Sudan face even greater problems with even less resources.

The pandemic has added another frightening aspect to lives in the Sudans where ‘normal’ includes hunger and the threat of disease.

“They would rather die of Covid-19 than hunger” is the really distressing plea delivered by Archbishop Ezekiel Kondo in Khartoum.

There is an urgent need for improved hygiene to help stave off the virus in a population weakened by famine. They need SOAP and FOOD.

We are using SOAP to describe everything linked to improved hygiene, which is just as important as food in fighting Covid-19, but which is lacking in so many areas.

Bishop Nicholas is launching this emergency appeal that will run throughout July to help our brothers and sisters in the Sudans. There need is dire. People are dying and we can help prevent that from happening.

We hope to raise at least £50,000, which will be divided equally between the Churches in Sudan and South Sudan.

In South Sudan we are working with the Episcopal Church’s Relief and Development arm called ‘SSUDRA’ based in Juba to radically improve sanitation levels by the local provision of soap and water supplies – just as in the UK, frequent and thorough hand washing is vital to maintaining safe hygiene levels during this global pandemic and beyond.

In Sudan, because of the rapid collapse of the economy, increasing numbers of people including babies and children are starving and they become weak and more vulnerable to Covid-19. So the first priority in Sudan is for the provision of basic food items. We are working directly with Archbishop Ezekiel Kondo in Khartoum.

Please give generously and help us reach our target.
