The Future Starts With Them

 

Dear Friend,

 

65% of South Sudan’s 12.6 million inhabitants are young people, under the age of 24. They’re the country’s future and greatest hope for peace.

 

‘Those who sow in peace will reap a harvest of righteousness.’ (James 3:18)

 

Recent flights have helped change the odds for children and young people with physical disabilities, including cleft lips, as well as the hidden, psychological wounds of war. Thanks to our partners, healing is happening where once there was stigma and conflict.

Giving kids with cleft lip a chance to smile

 

‘The difference, physically, was stark between those arriving and those departing,’ smiles MAF pilot Alistair Youren. ‘What really stood out for me was how happy the kids were going home. They didn’t stop smiling!’

Helping Imanya find her feet

 

Imanya lost her feet in a tragic accident which left her with the stigma of a lifelong disability. MAF helped fly her to get prosthetic feet last year, and again recently, for replacements. ‘With God’s help, Imanya will be an example to the community that disabled people have value,' explains Headteacher, Gamara Joseph.

Sowing forgiveness to heal the wounds of war

 

'With bitterness in our hearts, it is impossible to be salt and light in this world,' shares facilitator Kristi, to more than 35 pastors and leaders. 'We have to understand repentance and how to ask for forgiveness.' By the end of the workshop the pastors are ready to share what they’ve learned with young people in their communities.
