“No longer will they call you deserted or name your land desolate…”

Connecting Lives International Mission (CLIM) is a Christian mission organization committed to standing with the suffering and persecuted church through ministry, advocacy, and project support, especially in South Sudan.

Fran Boyle founded CLIM in 2003 after seeing the brutality of the Sudanese Civil War first-hand. Fifteen years later, CLIM continues to partner with local leaders to support renewal in South Sudan. From training pastors to sponsoring orphans’ education, from medical missions to economic support, CLIM works with local leaders to support the Aweil region as it rebuilds. In the United States, we work with political advocacy groups to raise awareness, connect the church with the outside world, and be a voice for the voiceless.

Our Projects

Education

Thanks to regular donations, CLIM sends more than 300 primary and middle schoolers to Hope Christian School in Akuak Rak. CLIM also supports secondary students and South Sudanese pastors’ education.

Medical Clinic

CLIM helped build a medical clinic in Akuak Rak that opened in 2008. The clinic reaches thousands of people for hundreds of miles. We provide medicine, equipment, training, and salaries for the clinic workers.

Economic Opportunity

By sponsoring cows and chicken, providing agricultural tools and training, and supporting the clinic and school in South Sudan, CLIM creates economic opportunities for the Dinka people.
