At the Half Maraton to support SOUTH SUDAN

Last Sunday, in Rome, 2,000 people took part in the half-marathon and almost 4,000 people signed up for the 5k “fun run,” according to Msgr. Melchor Sanchez de Toca y Alameda, undersecretary of pontifical council and head of the office’s section on sport.

Priests, nuns, the differently-abled, refugees and parents pushing kids in strollers were just some of those who took part in the events. Among these, a group of persons took part to both the runnings supporting South Sudan, together with “Solidarity with South Sudan” and JRS.

We thank all the persons who helped us to raise awareness around South Sudan and to support our Educational Project in Yambio.
