Mariam and Atiya Describe the Tragedy in Sudan

May 16, 2023

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble
with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
(2 Cor. 1:3-4)

Send the Aid They Desperately Need

An elderly Sudanese woman named Atiya described the war around her to Christianity Today:

“The planes bombed from above, the bullets were flying below. We stayed in our house, afraid, while all outside was boom, boom, boom.”

Another woman, “Mariam, who came to Khartoum from the Nuba Mountains to get medicine, went several days without water. And then a bomb hit the neighboring building, which collapsed upon her own.

“‘Whenever the airplanes disappeared overhead, we ran outside in search of food,’ she said. ‘But we had to hide behind buildings to avoid the gunfire, with corpses strewn on our right and left.’”

As clashes continue and attacks are tragically commonplace in hotspots around the African nation of Sudan, please don’t forget your brothers and sisters in Christ — people like Atiya and Mariam who are desperate to survive the violence and bloodshed.

As much as it grieves me to know what Christians and others are enduring in Sudan, the violence goes beyond borders and has engulfed entire regions around the world ...
