Muslims in the troubled region of Darfur and elsewhere in Sudan are working with Christians to build a church in the South of the country, as a symbol of peace, gratitude and solidarity.


Some 200 Muslims have volunteered to build the Roman Catholic church in Kimotong, Southern Sudan, Lomong's home village. The construction process began in January 2010 and went on over Easter.

“We appreciate that Lopez stood up for us,” explained Rudwan Dawod, president of the Darfur Students Association.

He continued: “We are helping to build this church to show we never again want the people of Darfur to be used against their brothers in the South.”
