Mende Nazer with children from the Nuba Mountains

Our hearts yearn daily for the welfare of the Nuba people – that is why we bring you the following update with indescribable joy!

Under very perilous circumstances, we delivered much-needed humanitarian supplies to Mende’s village of Karko and surrounding area. The trip also raised awareness of the ongoing conflict and subsequent suffering of the innocent population. There were other intangible benefits such as adding to our experience, reputation, partner networking and confidence.

Generosity at the Swiss Economic Forum 2014

The Swiss Economic Forum promotes entrepreneurial ideas and connects ideas from business, politics and science.

They extended this invitation to leaders in the humanities as well, welcoming Mende as a guest speaker in June 2014 where she shared her life experiences and future ambitions.

The generosity she received was overwhelming. Hundreds of participants at the forum expressed their empathy towards Mende and her foundation. The foundation also received over 30,000 EURO in donations.

The Attacks Continue

We continue to keep Mende's homeland in our thoughts and prayers. The attacks in the region continue. The militia groups and proxy forces are in the region plundering and burning villages, many local tribesman are being killed. As a result, many innocent villagers are being killed and the survivors have fled to nearby caves. The are suffering from illness and starvation and are cut off from assistance or help from NGOs and other charitable organizations.
