This month Grapes for Humanity and RUSH are helping a great organization called MAGNA Children at Risk that does awesome “hands on” field work in Sudan helping children at risk from war, disease, poverty, lack of water and food and lack of health care.
Currently women and children have had to flee their homes because of war, with over 10,000 people dead and 800,000 displaced. MAGNA is out there running camps, and providing over 5,000 much needed vaccinations for Sudanese women and children at risk from diseases such as polio, measles, diphtheria, whooping cough, and tuberculosis. They are currently expanding to check for malnutrition, and they will soon be administering Vitamin A. Check out MAGNA Children at Risk here, and if you can please help out.
