Sudan has faced over twenty years of a civil war that has brought violence, death, and destruction. With the signing of peace accords between theGovernment and the South in January 2005, new hope came to the country. Yet conflict remains in areas of the country such as Darfur, and both peace and development remain strong concerns. KAIROS works through the New Sudan Council of Churches in the areas of human rights, peace building, and community development. Below are background documents on Sudan, many of which present perspectives and analysis from our partners in the region.
