The Bishop Gassis Relief and Rescue Foundation (BGRRF) is a newly established organisation, initially with its Head Office in Nairobi, Kenya and currently transitioning to Turalei –South Sudan. This organisation has grown out of the pastoral services, and humanitarian and development programmes implemented through the Diocese of El Obeid (DoE) and South Sudan. H.E Macram Max Gassis, Bishop (Emeritus) of El Obeid, set up this foundation to continue the humanitarian work in the same areas of operation as the diocese, as well as to have the ability to respond to other areas of humanitarian need, as necessary.

The Foundation (BGRRF), in close collaboration with the Diocese of El Obeid is responding to the conflict in the Nuba Mountains in South Kordofan with a large-scale emergency programme. In addition to the emergency response programme, the organisation continues to run development, humanitarian and pastoral service activities in both Sudan and South Sudan. The activities include Health, Education, Women’s Groups, Voice of Peace Radio, Water and Sanitation provision and the diocese’s Pastoral Service Programmes.
