Healing, Peace & Reconciliation: ‚ÄúThese are some of South Sudan’s new heroes, Peace Mobilisers working at the grassroot level in their states to heal wounds and re-weave the torn fabric of their communities.

They came from all states of South Sudan to attend “A Step Together: Shared Journeys of Listening and Dialogue in South Sudan”.

The Committee’s Secretary General, Reverend Dr. Bernard Suwa says of the participants,”They flew from the four corners of South Sudan to the humble airstrip of Yei. They represent more than half of the 60+ ethnicities in the Republic of South Sudan. This is an inclusiveness I have never seen and we are proud. It’s an astonishing commitment to peace. Even if the conflict were to end tomorrow, true healing and reconciliation cannot come in a suitcase from Addis Ababa, it starts with all of us here in South Sudan.”
