Poverty And Hunger Everywhere
South Sudan has been racked with political and economic problems since its independence. Poverty and hunger are rampant. Our colleague Bassem is based in South Sudan and is working with a new orphanage that is trying to care for destitute children like 8-year-old Abori. When Abori’s parents died, he went to live with his grandmother, who drank a lot and abused him. Both are now being cared for in the orphanage. Our hope is to rescue more children so as to give them a hope and a future. Please pray for South Sudan!
