Wait, What's Going On In Sudan?

Since 2011, the government of Sudan has waged a brutal war against the people living in the country's Nuba Mountains. Schools, clinics, and markets are systematically bombed on a daily basis. Hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to flee their homes.

Over 25,000 children have fled to the safety of refugee camps. Fledgling schools in these camps have been started by the people, but all of them are underfunded, under-resourced, and overwhelmed with growing needs. Operation Broken Silence began the Endure Campaign in December of 2014 to provide support and created a stunning documentary film about these children. Watch the film below.
