The people of Sudan are overcoming two of the greatest challenges facing humanity today: war and genocide. Operation Broken Silence is working to accelerate their ability to generate lasting change through storytelling, education, advocacy, and emergency relief programs.

2. Support The Yida Photography Exhibit. In May of 2016, Operation Broken Silence commissioned talented photographer Katie Barber to document life in Yida Refugee Camp as part of our organization’s efforts to use media to get people involved with issues in Sudan. Katie captured over 4,000 photos and several hundred of them have been pre-selected for a photography exhibit we're raising funds to build. LEARN MORE »

3. Fundraise For Mother Of Mercy Hospital. There is one hospital in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan led by a single American doctor and a small local support staff. You can help the team at Mother of Mercy Hospital continue saving lives in the months ahead by raising money for their life-saving work. START FUNDRAISING »
