Since 1995, CSI has been working on the ground in Sudan to secure the freedom of South Sudanese men, women and children abducted and enslaved by Islamist militias. While in slavery, many of these people endure torture, sexual assault, and forced conversion to Islam. Despite the violence and terror, they hold on to hope – and through our underground network in Sudan, CSI is securing their freedom and bringing them home to South Sudan. CSI is committed to continuing the liberation of slaves captured during the Sudanese civil war until each one is free!

For each person returning to South Sudan, CSI provides a “Sack of Hope,” a survival kit containing food and supplies crucial to beginning life in freedom again.

Each person returning to freedom in South Sudan also receives the gift of a female goat.  Goats are easy to care for, can graze on the grasses of South Sudan, and produce milk, cheese, and eventually, other goats.

Malaria in Sudan

Malaria is the #1 killer of children in South Sudan. Pregnant women are also especially vulnerable.

Its victims suffer fever, chills, nausea, flu-like illness. And death. Children who survive it can suffer severe brain damage.

Now — the rainy season is here. Mosquitoes are rampant, and the threat of Malaria is at its highest as mosquitoes transmit the disease.

How Deadly is Malaria?

  • Malaria can kill half a million people a year
  • 70% of all malaria deaths occur in
  • children under five.
  • A child dies of malaria every two minutes.

Your crucially-timed gift today will be used to save those infected and prevent the spread of malaria, by providing:

  • Life-saving medicine. Administered by injection over the course of seven days to treat the most severe cases … this antimalarial medication saves lives!
  • It costs just $30 to treat one person. Please help us treat and heal 2,000 infected people immediately!
  • Mosquito nets. These special insecticide- treated nets reduce malaria transmission by more than half … effectively stopping the spread of this deadly disease.
  • Each net costs just$4. Please help us provide 25,000 nets for children now … protecting them from deadly mosquitos while they sleep.

Please give what you can today. The people of South Sudan just escaped devastating slavery … only to be at great risk this rainy season. Donate Here

With your help, our CSI team is committed to saving as many lives as possible by bringing medicine and mosquito nets to the poorest of the poor.
