Sudan Sunrise is a movement of individuals from diverse religious backgrounds and identities working to facilitate reconciliation efforts to ensure lasting peace and the end of oppression in Sudan and South Sudan.
Sudan Sunrise supports projects that facilitate reconciliation efforts aimed at providing education, health care, and community development in South Sudan and Sudan.
The Sudan Sunrise movement began in 2004 when Southern Sudanese delivered aid to Darfurian refugees. This aid effort was an extraordinary act of reconciliation, noting that Darfurians had been used by the government of Sudan for decades in a war against Southerners, which left over 2 million dead and at least 4 million displaced. Through grassroots reconciliation, education and community building, we lift up examples of peace and forgiveness between former enemies as alternatives to the history of violence in Sudan and South Sudan.
