Walk for Sudan Raises $16,000

Hope for Humanity’s seventh annual Walk for Sudan was held on Sunday, May 2. We raised more than $16,000 to support Hope & Resurrection Secondary School in Atiaba, Southern Sudan.

Almost 300 people attended the annual event, held at Christ Church Episcopal in Short Pump, to raise vital funds in support of the school lunch program, teacher salaries, and educational supplies.

Hope & Resurrection Secondary School was built in 2007 and is continually growing. The school will have all four grade levels filled next year, has added four additional teachers, and we are anticipating the completion of a new dining and meeting pavilion this spring.

The Walk for Sudan is our main source of revenue to support the general operating costs of the school. If you weren’t able to attend the walk, it’s not too late to help out. Every donation makes a difference to our students, and it’s easy to donate online.
