I've worked with colleagues to provide a way to help support our friends in Sudan who have lost their livelihoods and are still trying to protect sites and museums. It's all very complicated but we now have a central location in the US, through AmSARC, for contributions that are tax deductible. Would you get the word out to the ARCE-NC list, please? Aliph Foundation has agreed to provide $30,000 but it won't be forthcoming for at least a month, so we need funds urgently to provide stipends. It's only $50 per week to support one site guard, so even small donations will add up quickly. We probably need at least $4000 per week for the next four weeks.
Thanks for your help in spreading the word,
From: American Sudanese Archaeological Research Center <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Thank you for your help.
