Young people come out to greet Bishop Max Macram Gassi close to the conflict-ridden border between Sudan and South Sudan

A fragile peace in Sudan and South Sudan is shattering as the region teeters on the bink of all-out war.

Less than a decade after a bitterly fought civil war came to an end, full-scale conflict threatens the region once more.

On these pages, we examine the impact of recent events and show how the people's witness of faith provides hope in a time of crisis. And we reveal how you are helping us to offer practical help and spiritual succour to those most in need.
