2011 Walk for Sudan . . .        a  smashing success!

Thank you,  Senator Michael Bennet and Susan Daggett for being our honorary chairs.      Special thanks also to Ervin Johnson and Walter Davis, former Denver Nuggets who joined us!

Around 400 community members, many of them AVID students from Cherry Creek School District, joined together to support the people of Sudan on Sunday, October 16th in the fifth annual Walk for Sudan, held once again at Campus Middle School and Cherry Creek State Park.  Special guest from Sudan, Bishop Andudu Adam Elnail, expressed his heartfelt thanks to participants during the on-stage program preceding the walk.  

Nuba Water Project board members presented the bishop with a check for $10,000 on Wednesday, October 19th.  Funds will be used immediately to provide water, soap, salt, and  medical supplies, such as bandages, antibiotics, and other medicine to people in the Nuba Mountains suffering from the on-going government sponsored attacks.

Water, medicine, soap & salt...Govenment-sponsored genocide in the Nuba Mountains has wreaked havoc in the area and people are fleeing to mountain caves and to refugee camps in South Sudan.  Nuba Water Project , currently unable to work in the Nuba Mountains, will use money from this year's walk to provide water, medicine, soap, and salt to the refugees.

School Supplies...Ngaatheje Development Organization will purchase and deliver school supplies to Wanding, a small village in South Sudan, the home village of Juanis Lual.  Plans include construction of a secure, weather-proof storage hut for the supplies.

Health and Medical Programs...HealthKind implements sustainable, community-based health and wellness programs and services in the developing world.  Our pilot project is building and staffing a child and maternal health clinic in Kongor, a village in South Sudan and home of our Co-Founder, Kuier Atem Deng.  Proceeds from the Walk for Sudan will help us get closer to our goal of  traveling to Kongor to secure a site where our first clinic will be built.

2010 Walk for Sudan was a Success! 

A Sea of White Shirts Brings Hope to People in Sudan.............................................October, 2010

Nuba Water Project is much closer to drilling a well at Sallara School in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan, Walk Startthanks to Cherry Creek School District students and others from the Denver metro area.  Over 350 people, most wearing Walk for Sudan T-shirts, enjoyed music by the band Two Worlds Connect, refreshments, and a short program before setting out on a 5K journey into Cherry Creek State Park.  Some chose to carry water on their heads to experience the difficult process of obtaining water in Sudan. 

Funds raised from this year’s walk were divided between Nuba Water Project and Ngaathaje Development Organization – both local non-profits dedicated to helping people in Sudan, where people are still trying to recover from 20 years of civil war.

2 girls carry waterBertha Manshadi, leader from the Baha'i Youth Group, had this to say: “On behalf of our group of youth we would like to thank you for allowing us to take part in such a wonderful event.  The youth truly enjoyed themselves and are already looking forward to next year.” 

Special thanks go to AVID students across the district who continue to make the Walk for Sudan a success. Eaglecrest, Campus Middle School, Falcon Creek, Liberty, Prairie, Cherry Creek, Grandview, CCPrep, as well as Denver’s South High, Center for International Studies and Metro College all contributed in fundraising and participating.  Thanks also to Campus Middle School for hosting and to former Denver Nuggets Ervin Johnson and Walter Davis for special guest appearances.
