“Slavery exists in Sudan. Christian Solidarity International is doing excellent work in helping these children to be brought back to their families.”
– Bishop Macram Max Gassis, Bishop of El Obeid, Sudan
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.
DR. LUKA’S CLINIC
CSI provides financial support to the clinic of our field physician, Dr. Luka Deng, who returned to South Sudan from England during the Sudanese civil war to help his people. His clinic in Wanyjok, Aweil East County is the only stocked clinic for 150 miles, and serves hundreds of patients daily, including many war victims and former slaves.
