The United Church of Christ is supporting emergency response operations in Darfur, Sudan as a founding member of Action by Churches Together, Intl. Your generous gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing and the special Sudan/Darfur Crisis appeal make this life-saving ministry possible.
Updated information on our response
Since the humanitarian crisis began in 2004, displacing 2.5 million persons and claiming the lives of over 200,000 people, the United Church of Christ has provided more than $115,000 for food, shelter, water, sanitation and other humanitarian assistance.
In the coming year, we have made a pledge to raise an additional $35,000 to support continued humanitarian assistance as well as peace building.
