3,400 Christians, mostly widows and orphans rescued from Muslim controlled Sudan

As part of the Exodus campaign to rescue Christians, thousands of children were part of a recent mission in Sudan where Islamic extremists are targeting and murdering Christians.

Barnabas Fund was able to transfer 3,400 Christians out of hostile Muslim Sudan to relatively safe South Sudan, International Christian Concern reports.

An increasingly aggressive Islamist government that wants to eradicate the Christian presence from the North leaving many Christians unable to flee south, set up shantytowns to survive.

Barnabas Fund has airlifted and bussed nearly 5,000 vulnerable Christians to South Sudan, most are widows and orphans.

Dr Patrick Sookhdeo, International Director of Barnabas Fund, said: “We are very grateful that our supporters have been moved by the plight of their Christian family in Sudan to give generously to this rescue mission. We must now call on your help again as we prepare to assist more endangered women and children. Perhaps you could ask your church to have a collection for this cause?”
