Amid yet another report of political rumblings in South Sudan, ITMI partner, Jahim Buli, is working relentlessly and selflessly on behalf of his people.
Jahim providing South Sudanese refugee children with a new set of clothing for Christmas.
Jahim’s visits to the camp are a result of our desire for God’s creation to flourish in knowledge and obedience to Him as their Savior.
The people in South Sudanese refugee camps do not have it easy. Their needs are great. Food is the most dire physical need at the moment. Aid organizations just can’t keep up with the massive amounts of people who are displaced and can’t raise their own food by farming.
Waiting for water.
Jahim is earnest about working for the good of his people. He has refused to abandon them even though he has the opportunity to ensure the comfort and safety of his own family by leaving.
We’d like to help Jahim feed some of the people in a refugee camp near his home. He’ll make sure they hear about God’s love for them!
Jahim and Gisma Buli
