Bibles for The Sudans
Country of Particular Concern
Sudan is 6th on the 2019 Open Doors World Watch List of the
50 countries where it is most difficult to live as a Christian. It
is also a “country of particular concern” for the US
Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF),
an independent, bipartisan advisory body.
The living word
In 2011, Sudan’s former president, Omar al-Bashir, said he wanted to adopt a “100
percent” Islamic constitution after the Christian-majority south had voted
to secede. Since then, foreign missionaries have been expelled, churches
confiscated or demolished, and leaders harassed and arrested.
SSNET, through partnering with various organisations, enables the printing
of and distribution of Bibles for Sudan and South Sudan. Through one
such partnership with Bibles for Africa, SSNET is able to sponsor the
printing and delivery of a New Testament Bible for only R5.
A R5 donation will ensure a Bible for a Sudanese Christian.
