Help Christian Refugees this Christmas

Please Help the Faithful of South Sudan

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.

Church Around the World
