In 2009 there was a further attack by the LRA and 40,000 people were displaced from their homes.  In Yambio there were 17,000 refugees in the area our funds were supporting.  The Sudan Support Fund sent funds to relieve starvation as the people had been cut off from the area growing food.

In September 2009 Reverend Samuel Peni became the bishop-elect for the new diocese of Nzara.  Bishop Samuel consulted widely and created a clear mission and plan for the diocese.  Education was at the heart of this plan.
