Sudanese Community Center

The Sudanese Community Center, the first center of its kind in the nation, assists the large number of Illinois residents who fled the genocide in Darfur and other regions of Sudan. It is the realization of a dream long held by the Sudanese community in Illinois. Some of the Illinois Sudanese are "Lost Boys" who walked thousands of miles after their villages were destroyed and their family members killed during Sudan's civil war. Others have fled the ongoing genocide in Sudan's Darfur region, where over 300,000 have been killed and over 2 million lives are still at risk.
