On Amaze Day, you made a difference.

On Amaze Day, this past June 21st, you helped us raise over $40,000 to help victims of war and drought in South Sudan!  Your donation was multiplied 10x and became more than $400,000 worth of food for hungry Sudanese.

Recently, we heard a story of one family who you helped through your generosity. I am sharing it with you today so that you will know just how much of a difference you have made.

Adut Apet is a mother to 5 children, and lives in the small village of Majokdut, South Sudan. When her husband was left disabled from war, she became the sole provider of her household, and had to work several low-paid jobs in order to provide for her large family.

 

“Before the food voucher program, we only had one meal per day. Some days, we had no food at all. When we became involved in the program, a weight was lifted off my chest. I did not have to worry about where our next meal would come from and I had more time to support and care for my family.

Since I received seeds and tools, I have become able to plant and cultivate food this season. This will change our lives. I am thankful to Tearfund,  it’s partners, and donors in Canada for reducing my burden. May God bless you!” – Adut Apet

 

On behalf of the thousands of South Sudanese like Adut, we extend our sincerest thank you for your faithful support. Together, we are changing lives for the long-run.
