ABOUT SUDAN RELIEF FUND
HAVING WITNESSED MORE THAN 20 YEARS OF HORRENDOUS RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION, ENSLAVEMENT, RAPE, TORTURE, STARVATION AND MURDER OF THE SUDANESE PEOPLE AT THE HANDS OF THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT, THE SUDAN RELIEF FUND WAS STARTED FOR THE PURPOSE OF BRINGING FOOD, SAFE DRINKING WATER, CLOTHING, SHELTER, MEDICAL ATTENTION AND THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST TO THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH SUDAN.
WE ARE THE SUDAN RELIEF FUND.
Since its inception in 1998, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization has made significant progress under the most difficult circumstances imaginable – but much work remains to be done. The 2.2 million people who have perished as the direct result of a campaign of genocide against South Sudan’s Christian and non -Muslim population- a death toll greater than all the victims in Bosnia, Kosovo and Rwanda combined.

Without hesitation President Bashir’s government has bombed churches, schools, hospitals and refugee centers. For over 20 years, the Catholic Church has provided the people with the basics needed to preserve life and to find Christ.
The regime has tortured and killed its own citizens including catechists, teachers and priests. I can tell you that President Bashir’s government supports the selling of Christians and non-Muslims as slaves.
What’s more, I can tell you that millions of our brothers and sister in South Sudan have no homes, and so must find shelter wherever possible under extremely unhealthy conditions. They are in need of clean water, food and basic sanitation.
That is why in 1998 we established the Sudan Relief Fund for the purpose of bringing food, clothing, shelter, medical attention and the Gospel of Christ to the people of South Sudan.
