Public Service Announcement

I got this email today from Women for Women International. I'm doing what they asked, passing along this information and asking you to pass it on too.

This weekend Sudan faces the possibility of a historic transformation, when southern Sudanese will vote in a referendum on whether or not to split their nation into two separate countries. In our latest video our Sudan Country Director Karak Mayik explains what this vote means for the country and the women survivors of war we serve.

Our hope is that the vote will be a peaceful process, but sadly Sudan has known little but violence, displacement and loss of lives for the last 40 years. The women of Sudan are strong, but they need our support. We invite you to watch our video (see the web page) and share it with your friends and family. As the vote moves closer visit our webpage dedicated to standing with our Sudanese sisters for ways that you can help and for updates on the situation. This is your chance to use your voice and be a part of the movement that believes that women are important in building peaceful societies.

Your support gives our sisters – not only in Sudan but in all of the countries where we work - the ability to hope, dream, and stand up for themselves. Join us today in standing with our Sudanese sisters.

On behalf of the women we serve,
All of us at
Women for Women International

I really and truly believe that if all the women of the world were to stand together there would be peace in this world. Maybe the Sudan is the place to start.

Wishing for you and your children and your children's children,
Merry ME
