Since December 2013, the newest country in the world, South Sudan, has been involved in a civil war that has ravaged the country and sent people fleeing to Internal Displacement Camps and Refugee Camps in Ethiopia, Uganda, Sudan, and Kenya.
In 2016, one of the South Sudan libraries we support fell victim to the insurgency at River Yei State when the South Sudan Evangelical School of Theology was burned to the ground, together with its library.
Revd Dr Tom Nak Kokanyi from the school wrote to tell us that although he (and many of his compatriots) are now ‘in exile’ in Uganda he would very much like to continue to receive books from the Trust in order that he might distribute them among the pastors currently within the refugee camps in Uganda. As Revd Dr Tom explains: “Our library (in South Sudan) used to hold over 1000 books but now nothing remains. A sad story.”
Worship and ministries of compassion, trauma healing, reconciliation, and conflict management are the order of the day for those living in the refugee camps and we would very much like to support Revd Dr Tom and his fellow pastors by sending him a large collection of books to give a boost to their ministries.
We are currently trying to raise the funds to mail the books to Uganda, so if you feel you are able to make a donation to enable us to do so, pleases do get in touch or visit the donation page on our website.
