World Mission Stamp Appeal

The situation in South Sudan is dire.   It is in the middle of a civil war, which began in December 2013 and has continued since, with serious abuses against civilians by both government forces and opposition fighters - despite a peace agreement.   Many thousands have been forced out of the country.   The Giffen Institute of Theology (GIT) of the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan needs books.    It has had to relocate to Kakuma, a refugee camp in Kenya, and needs books for students. The Institute not only provides valuable education for students, but supports those who have fled from war through providing training and activities encouraging reconciliation between students from different tribes.  This year’s stamp appeal will help do just that, by selling your used stamps to make money for much needed resources.
