If you are looking for answers to what is happening right now in Sudan and ways to get involved, you've come to the right place. A massacre in Khartoum, international outrage, and an outpouring of support to the Sudanese people. The past several days have seen a whirlwind of attention for the long-neglected crisis in Sudan, largely becuase of the #BlueForSudan hashtag.
Operation Broken Silence has been working in one of the most oppressed parts of Sudan, the Nuba Mountains, for 8 years. Our nonprofit comes alongside Sudanese and helps them tell their own stories through film and photography. We use these stories to raise support for Sudanese-led education and healthcare programs. We focus on helping the Sudanese drive forward their solutions to their problems. LEARN MORE ABOUT US »

Many of you are already sharing information on social media about what is happening in Sudan. It's also really great to give your friends an easy way to help as well! We encourage you to start an online fundraising page for the schools in Yida or the hospital in the Nuba Mountains. Fundraising is a great way to not only provide direct support to the Sudanese people, but also raise awareness about the situation in Sudan.
Your fundraising page comes with a video showing what the Sudanese are up against and some great informatIon to provide friends the facts they are looking for.
