Bishop Paride Taban wins international human rights award

Bishop Taban to recieve the Freedom of Worship Award 

Posted by Claire Colleran on Tue 13th February, 2018 in News

Congratulations to Bishop Paride Taban, on receiving the 2018 Freedom of Worship award for his efforts to reconcile the peoples of South Sudan. 

You may remember Bishop Taban from last year's World Mission Sunday appeal, when Missio reported on South Sudan's visionary Kuron Peace Village. The Peace Village was established in 2005 by Bishop Taban with the help of Mill Hill Missionaries and Missio.

Since its formation, the Peace Village has become a beacon of solidarity and hope, growing to accommodate thousands of South Sudanese and providing a model for countries everywhere. We are delighted that Bishop Taban has been recognised through the Four Freedoms Award and ask for your continued prayers for lasting peace in South Sudan.
