Nuba Now Update

The Nuba Now Campaign is based on 3 pillars: raise awareness, raise funds and ignite political change.

The campaign was launched in September 2012 to a crowd of 50+ people at Einsteins 251 Cafe. In the very first 24 hours after the launch, the campaign had already notched up more than $3000 in donations, which will be sent to CARE Australia who will use it to support the Yida Refugee Camp in South Sudan.

Since then, the campaign’s inspiring and engaging 35 minute presentation has been given at numerous venues, including at schools, private homes and community conferences. The campaign was launched in Sydney on 30th October.

We want the situation in the Nuba Mountains to be part of our community’s mainstream shabbos conversation and we need your help to achieve that. Hence, we encourage everyone to jump onto our facebook page or website, and to book  a presentation at your workplace, synagogue or even at your home to support the momentum of this campaign.

“If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?”

Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14
