Today Is #GivingTuesday

this is the best day of the year to give to the people of Sudan

Posted by on November 29th, 2016

Tuesday, Novemeber 29 is hands down one of the best days of the year to make a donation to our lifesaving programs in Sudan. Why? Because all transaction fees for online giving are waived and we put 100% of your gift towards our storytelling, education, advocacy, and relief programs! 

This #GivingTuesday we are bringing you 4 great ways to give. Here they are! 


1. Give To Education In Yida Refugee Camp

Nuba children are facing an education catastrophe as schools have been bombed and burnt to the ground by the Sudanese government. That's the bad news. The good news is that you can do something about it! Your donation will put teachers back to work, students back into the classroom, and deliver needed resources like pencils, paper, books, and chalkboards to new schools in the camps. GIVE HERE »

Since 2015, we've put 8 teachers back to work who are serving over 750 students every week in Yida Refugee Camp. LEARN MORE »

2. Give To Emergency Relief Efforts In The Nuba Mountains

The government of Sudan has been blocking official humanitarian aid to the Nuba Mountains of Sudan for over 5 years now, but that hasn't stopped us from reaching men, women, and children with humanitarian relief. Your donation will help us continue breaking this humanitarian blockade by providing desperately need emergency food, seed stock, and medication directly to frontline communities. GIVE HERE »

Since 2012, we've reached thousands of people with humanitarian relief despite the official blockade. LEARN MORE »

3. Give To Mother of Mercy Hospital

There is one hospital in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan with a single surgeon: Dr. Tom Catena. Mother of Mercy Hospital serves a population of nearly one million people underneath the shadows of Sudanese government warplanes. Your donation will help support this overwhelmed hospital so that Dr. Tom and his Nuba colleagues can continue saving thousands of lives. GIVE HERE »

It's not unusual for Dr. Tom and the local staff to see up to 400 patients in a single day. Each year they serve thousands who are suffering from war-related wounds and disease. LEARN MORE »

4. Send An E-Card

When you look at any of the first giving options above, you probably noticed that there is an option to "dedicate my donation in honor or in memory of someone". If you complete this section of the donation page, you can send an e-card with a brief message to a friend or family member letting them know that you gave in honor of them!

The first three giving options have two e-cards associated with the program and two general holiday-themed ones. If you would like additional holiday e-card options, we have setup another donation page that has more! SEND AN E-CARD »
