4th Annual Sudan Gala a success!
Your generosity raised over $20,000 for Dr. Jill Seaman’s medical project in South Sudan! Half of that brings an eye surgeon and hid team to Old Fangak to restore sight to 200 people! The other half brings in essential medicines and supplies for 4 to 6 weeks of care. Your dollars are used to meet the greatest need; you keep hope alive for a people who have so little; you make a difference in their lives and in this world!
