Dr. Tom Catena—2017 Aurora Prize Laureate

The Sudan Relief Fund would like to congratulate Dr. Tom Catena for winning the prestigious Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity. Dr. Tom, a Catholic missionary from New York, is the only doctor permanently based in Sudan’s war-ravaged Nuba Mountains where humanitarian aid is heavily restricted. He was selected as the 2017 Aurora Prize Laureate from more than 550 nominations submitted from 66 countries. He won the humanitarian award for his tireless commitment and selfless efforts for serving more than 750,000 citizens amidst ongoing civil war. Dr. Tom is truly an inspiration to all. We are extremely proud and thankful for his extraordinary efforts as he continues to serve our brothers and sisters in Christ”
