STANDING WITH THE SOUTH SUDANESE
Dear friends and family,
Thank you for waiting patiently to hear from me about the ongoing conflict in South Sudan. Although the war has not come to an end, I do have some good news to share with you.
The two towns of Bor and Bentiu that had been captured by the rebels have been recaptured by the government forces this past weekend. Thousands of bodies are lying on the streets, most of whom are women and children.
Bor city has been burned down to ashes and the people have attempted to go back are suffocated by the smells. Jalle community back in South Sudan are raising humanitarian support to help the victims of war and thanks to Rebuild South Sudan for donating $1,000 toward that cost. People are without food, cloth, shelter and clean drinking water. If you want to donate please us know and your donation will be directed to those in need.
Our school has not been affected by the conflict but some of the building materials we stored in Bor are not yet known whether they have been burnt as the city is now in ashes. I am planning on going back to south Sudan on February 2, 2014 so please pray for me and for the country.
Thank you for your continued support.
