arrow icon. Roundtables for Mission

A child directs a donkey in Dondona, an Arab village in Southern Darfur, that has received families displaced by fighting between Arab communities. Sudan is a place of contrasts: dusty and dry, lush and green; Muslim and Christian; peaceful and hostile. It is also a place where one can see Easter hope springing up in corners where once all hope was lost. You can see it on the faces of children who attend school -- be it under mango trees or in thatch-roofed classrooms.

As I reviewed hundreds of Paul Jeffrey's photos for this issue on Sudan, the photos of the children stood out. Though the facts of their lives are harsh and often unyielding, the Sudanese children have not lost hope. ... These children are Sudan's hope for a better future. They have survived horror and deprivation—more than most of us will ever see in our lifetimes— and they have survived.
