An international relief agency plans to airlift some 3,400 Christians out of Sudan, where they face increasing persecution from the Islamist government.
The Barnabas Fund has already whisked about 5,000 Christians from the embattled country, where President Omar Hassan al-Bashir has vowed to create a a 100 percent Islamic constitution, without communism or secularism or Western [influences]. The Christians will be taken to South Sudan, a smaller nation formed in 2011 where religious freedom is better tolerated.
We launched this as major global initiative, and have had such a tremendous response from the Christian community, Julian Dobbs, a bishop and honorary director for the Baranbas Fund, told FoxNews.com.The situation for Christians who have remained behind has proven to create hardships for them, especially for women and children."
The Barnabas Fund's airlifting project began in August 2012, but only recently has the organization secured funds for a second phase.
Sharia law is heavily enforced in Sudan, where nearly 98 percent of the population is Muslim.
It has made it very difficult, if not impossible, for Christians to worship, Dobbs also said. There is also no access for food and proper safety.
Many families were also forcibly split from their loved ones as the pressure of persecution has increased due to the growth of Islam in the region.
The relief effort will cost about $120,000, with funding coming from private donations.

$120,000 in donations needed to immigrate 3,400 Christians. Just $35.29 each.
Call me a rogue, but sounds like when they go to South Sudan, they need to be given a rifle and some training as well.
Why are these Christian refugees resettled in Africa, but all Muslim refrugees are automatically resettles in the US?
Cause most of them are Evangelicals and America is trying to silence it's Evangelicals as it is .
BTW one of the first things South Sudan did when it broke off was to recognize the state of Israel . That should tell you everything you need to know why our muslim friendly government would never even consider allowing them in . Instead we bring in Sudanese who are muslim by the droves.
Got to remember that the Christian faith is growing world-wide and in a special way in the global south.
.....Yet some of these Christians still find their way to America.
Why don’t they “sell their cloak and buy a ‘rifle’” (Luke 22:36) in their home country and fight the persecution?
