Mother of Mercy Hospital in Gidel

Sudan Relief Fund has helped fund the Mother of Mercy Hospital in the Nuba Mountains for many years. We provide funding for salaries of staff, medicines, supplies and even helped fund the delivery of nutritional supplements. We are eternally grateful to the efforts of Dr. Tom Catena, the only doctor at the Mother of Mercy Hospital.

It has been an enormous challenge building and supporting these crucial institutions in this war-ravaged land. Against significant odds and not inconsiderable danger . . .

Mother of Mercy Hospital in Gidel

We have been able to provide critical support to build, staff, and provision the Mother of Mercy Gidel Hospital for the besieged people of the Nuba Mountains. There is no other hospital for nearly 300 miles. This area is a focal point in the war being waged against the Nuba people and all those who struggle against the genocide and oppression of the government.

Without the orphanage, I could not be sitting here where I am today. It’s so important, especially for someone like me who has no family.

Trying to Rise Up from the Ashes

Sister Anne Wandia wakes up every morning with a single purpose and mission – to give displaced families of the Wau refugee camps a chance to start again.

Torn from homes, villages, and peaceful agrarian lives, thousands have fled to the Wau refugee camps through the years, when violence or disaster swept through their communities without warning.
