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.

Mende, her family and her homeland in our thoughts and prayers.

We wanted to give you the unfortunate news that Mende’s village of Karko has recently been attacked by militia groups in the Sudan. They are believed to be proxy forces of the government. The village has been evacuated and many homes destroyed. Mende’s immediate family have fled into the nearby hills and are living, day to day, in a desperate situation. It goes without saying that Mende is very distraught. It has delayed the Foundation’s planned visit and construction project. It is unknown, at this time, when it can resume.
