Stories from Sudan’s Nuba Mountains

Stories from Sudan’s Nuba Mountains

If you are discouraged by the state of the world, this collection of essays may restore your faith in the capacity of individuals to make a difference. American activist and academic Sam Totten has brought together the stories of unsung heroes, mostly doctors and nurses, who volunteer in a Catholic hospital, Mother of Mercy, in a war zone on the south-east edge of Sudan. There are also chapters by Westerners who, guided by their Christian faith, risk their lives to bring much-needed food and medicine to the Nuba people. The stories of these “accidental activists” are not a matter of history: the ethnic cleansing, bombing and bloodshed continues, unreported and unnoticed.
