I have decided to use the Comrades 2019 season to raise funds for the children of the Nuba Mountains. There is a great need for learning resources in Sudan currently. There is a school, in this area where S4J works, with 900 learners that is in desperate need of a basic science laboratory.
Many of the Sudanese children will not have what our children take for granted. A picture that comes to mind is of a young barefoot Nuba boy in a refugee camp. He had a handmade bag in his hand – probably with one book and one pen inside. However, he had a big smile that said: “Here I come, world!” The willingness of these kids to learn is truly inspiring. Children will walk far and sit in makeshift shelters under a sweltering sun, but they will come. They appreciate every opportunity to learn.
Please keep these children in your hearts and prayers. You can make a difference by contributing any small donation (closing date 9 June 2019) to help make this dream a reality for the Sudanese children.
