Sudan was Africa’s largest nation until it parted ways with the newly created Republic of South Sudan in 2011. The government is Islamic, though there are minority Christian communities in different parts of the country. The economy is heavily based on oil and oil pipelines from South Sudan, and manufacturing and agriculture depend heavily on the Nile River, whose two main branches join at the capital, Khartoum.
ALARM in Sudan
Even as many displaced South Sudanese people leave Sudan for the South, ALARM maintains its commitment to serve the community and the church in the Republic of Sudan.
ALARM has a number of initiatives to assist women and children, including a microfinance project to teach sewing skills to Sudanese women in Khartoum, and a Children and Women’s Development Center in Darfur. It is in some of the most difficult places in Sudan that ALARM’s ministry has been most deeply blessed with the opportunity to see people realize that they are loved.
ALARM works with officials and communities nationwide to teach the principles of servant leadership. In the southern part of Sudan, ALARM also trains church leaders in dire need of education.
We ask that you pray ALARM and for the nation of Sudan.
