Relief/Refugee update in South Sudan/Uganda

We are grateful for your continued prayers and support for the situation in South Sudan and Uganda.

On the June 20, 2017, our ministry partner in South Sudan (AIC) distributed food items such as maize flour, beans and cooking oil to 300 households across the border in Uganda. Beneficiaries were the most vulnerable in the community — widows, elderly, disabled, and other needy in the church.

 

Besides direct relief help, AIC leaders are traveling between South Sudan and the refugee camps, visiting, encouraging and training those in need. Presently the AIC Director of Women’s Ministry is traveling with two other women leaders to hold training workshops on small business management and distributing funds for Micro-enterprise loans for the refugee women groups in Kiryandongo, Adjumani and Bidibidi refugee camps.

 

AIC are also making arrangements for a Korean medical team to come and hold clinics in the camps in August. Pray for all the permits and logistical arrangements needed.

 

As the situation continues to worsen in South Sudan with prices soaring out of reach, pray for this work and the Church in South Sudan and in the camps.
