  • “Welcoming the Stranger” is designed to help groups “pray, give, learn, and advocate on conflict, migration, refugees and food security.” The resource can be used in part or in whole at any other time of the year.  The “Give” section of the resource features PWRDF’s food assistance work in South Sudan.
