Knowledge – Unity – Self-reliance – Healing …

this is what KUSH means – headed by Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar Belkys Lopez, our in-country partner in South Sudan. The devastation and displacement of families, especially female and children-headed families in South Sudan is go great, we returned with another 400 Family Survival tents and additional 800 mosquito nets. KUSH were so impressed with the way we go about our humanitarian aid delivery, they are now fundraising within the Sudanese communities around the world for 1,000s of our Disaster Aid Australia Family Survival tents.
