Mother and Child in South Sudan

The Faithful of South Sudan Need You.
Please Help Today.

Can you support us in building a culture of love in South Sudan? 

In the last three years, more than 50,000 have died and nearly 2.5 million people have been forced from their homes in this, the world’s youngest country.  The faithful have suffered through decades of a brutal civil war and today continue to live the horrors of bloodshed, abduction and assaults on women and girls.

With your support, Aid to the Church in Need is helping, in particular, the youngest victims of violence by funding Church programs that provide for  basic needs, shelter, and a healing environment where children can be children -- like the House of Hope, started by The Missionaries of the Divine Word in the Parish of Lainya, where youth can play, learn to work as a team and do their homework.

Any amount will aid God’s most vulnerable in their daily struggle to survive. Thank you.


Sister Annie - People are living in Fear.

This ordinary woman, Sister Annie Demerjian, is doing extraordinary things in Syria, but the circumstances are difficult and the terror continues each day for every man, woman and child.

They are living in fear most of the time and also with hope that one day there will be peace.  Parents, when they send their children to school, say goodbye like they will not see each other again, because they know that at any time rockets or shells might fall on top of us.

The situation is a dire one.  But you can bring a measure of hope to our brothers and sisters today.  Your donation will provide clothes and shoes to orphans; enable the building of schools so that children can return to their education; provide food, shelter and medicine, and so much more.  May God bless you for whatever you can give.
