Fundraising News: Biblelands in bid to raise £150k to help Sudanese refugees

Christian charity Biblelands has launched a Christmas appeal to raise £150,000 for refugees from war-torn Sudan who have fled to Egypt.

The money will go to Biblelands' Christian project partners in Egypt, which provide emergency food, clothing and healthcare to 25,000 refugees. Its services include clinics, family care units and education for refugee children.

Nigel Edward-Few, director, said the current crisis in Darfur had increased the number of refugees reaching Egypt, and funds were needed to prevent the closure of existing programmes.

"Many refugees arriving in Cairo are traumatised, without possessions of any kind and often alone, having been orphaned, or having had to leave other family members behind," he said. "Often their only hope is the support and care that Biblelands' Egyptian Christian-led project partners can provide."

The non-denominational Christian charity, which just celebrated its 150th anniversary, works with 60 Christian-led partner organisations in the Middle East.
