Australian Presbyterian World Mission is seeking to raise funds to buy 33,000 Bibles for South Sudanese refugees who have fled into Ethiopia –

“In 2013 civil war broke out in South Sudan between the two major tribes — the Dinka and the Nuer. Many South Sudanese fled to neighbouring countries with little more than the clothes they were wearing. In the neighbouring country of Ethiopia, the refugee camps house 385,000 people. About 100,000 of them belong to our sister church the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan.

What do our brothers and sisters ask for? Bibles in their mother tongue — the Nuer language.”

(The Archbishop of Sydney’s Anglican Aid is also working to help refugees from the violence in South Sudan.)
