CRESS UK (Christian Relief and Education in Southern Sudan) was formed in 2011 and is a small but growing charity focused on improving life in Southern Sudan – one of the poorest and most fragile nations on earth.  Our aim is to encourage self-sufficiency and growth by providing training, education and health support enabling some of these amazing people who live there an opportunity to improve their lives and in turn improve the lives of others, thus securing a better future for the country as a whole.

We mainly focus our efforts in the Central Equatorial region and usually work within the Diocese of Kajo Keji.

Our work and achievements:

  • We sponsor 90 children, in all stages of education. All of our Sponsors have a named child, and the children know who their sponsor is writing to them once a year. Sponsors are provided an annual progress report.
     
  • In September 2015 the Liwolo Clinic was opened, providing health care in the area.
     
  • The clinic employs a nurse, midwife, lab assistant and dispensing assistant. Solar power to the clinic means medicines can be kept cool and investigative testing carried out on site.
  • Annually we deliver a teaching conference, which in 2015 was attended by pastors from several dioceses and was held at the Kajo Keji Cathedral. 
  • Helping small business is a vital element of our work and in particular, we work with the women of the community. Florence set up her knitting business a year ago and has since secured two further contracts and opened a tea room!
  • We fund local people to attend the Kasenge Riverford Organic Farm School in Uganda. They return with much hope and knowledge, putting what they have learnt into practice and share with others.  We also supply tools and seeds to help them get their own gardens started.  Alongside the farm teaching groups, a life skills course is run, CRESS plans to develop the project further.
