The Department of Homeland Security has filed notice that it is extending Temporary Protection Status for foreign nationals from El Salvador, Nicaragua, Haiti and Sudan until Jan. 2, 2020.
Catholic bishops in South Sudan and Sudan appealed to the citizens of the two countries — including those in diaspora — to work harder for peace, telling them, “True peace can only be built by citizens like you.”
As war continues in South Sudan, a neighboring diocese in Sudan is housing more than 200,000 South Sudanese refugees, its bishop said.
A U.S. physician who has won accolades for his service in a war-torn corner of Sudan said he has just done what any missionary is called to do.
The Nuba Mountains region in southern Sudan is a land the world has largely forgotten, except for the Catholic Church, which for more than three decades has stood with the people as they endured hunger, bombing and neglect.
The Nuba Mountains are home to nine distinct ethnic groups, which include 86 tribes speaking more than 40 languages, according to local authorities.
