ABOUT THE RED ARMY FOUNDATION

The Red Army Foundation is a membership-based, non-denominational, and national patriotic veterans’ social enterprise founded on the 29th of July 2012 as an umbrella organization to bring together the SPLM/A Red Army veterans, associates, and new members with the primary goal of; tracing, mobilizing, registering, organizing, serving, empowering, developing, rejuvenating and refocusing the membership, as a collective national duty and responsibility.

The Red Army Foundation is legally represented globally by the Lost Boys and Girls Memorial Foundation (LBGMF), an affiliate organization registered to provide social, cultural, educational, and economic services to the Lost Boys and Girls and South Sudanese Communities in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Kenya. The long-term strategic objectives of the Red Army Foundation are:

  • Advocate on behalf and serve the members of the Red Army Foundation and address their most essential and pressing needs;
  • Preserve the Red Army SPLM/A Red Army legacy of demonstrating patriotism to the nation right from an early age during the SPLM/A Liberation Struggle, and instill the spirit of patriotism, hard work, and stewardship among the young people today and generations to come while supporting and advocating for the protection and development of children in conflict situations worldwide;
  • Exert special efforts and work towards promoting unity and peaceful coexistence among the people of South Sudan, using the Red Army Legacy of oneness and comradeship, having been brought up and nurtured by the SPLM/A during the Liberation Struggle as one family of young people from distinct tribes and ethnic backgrounds, yet considering each other as brothers and sisters, living and working together harmoniously, and
  • Partner with the government and the people of South Sudan and development partners in the state-building and nation-building process by actively participating in the sustainable development of our country as critical stakeholders, trusted, reliable and loyal partners.

MOBILIZE AND ORGANIZE: OUR STRENGTH IS IN NUMBERS

The Red Army Foundation is specifically launching this website to realize its strength of numbers because of its broad membership all over South Sudan and in the Diaspora, which grew immensely over the SPLM/A Liberation Struggle. The Red Army Foundation has a far-reaching membership, constituting hundreds of thousands of people from various tribes and ethnic groups all over South Sudan and among the South Sudanese Diaspora population. The vast membership of the Red Army Fraternity is an excellent point of strength for the country, as it gives the Red Army a mighty and robust voice, unquestionable relevance, unique and extended influence, and particular mutual social capital, among others.

WHO DO WE SERVE? 

Since the beginning of Sudan’s civil war on 16th May 1983, children have been at the center of the conflict. Many names were coined to refer to this multitude of children from Sudan, such as Unaccompanied minors, Red Army, Child Soldiers, Jesh Amher, and later Lost Boys and Girls. No matter where they were, all these children suffered the consequences of war in refugee camps, IDP camps, military camps as child soldiers, or abroad, sometimes left without parental guidance because their fathers were taking part in the war in Sudan. Whatever the name, group, or unit, these children have now come together under two different terms; Red Army and Lost Boys and Girls. Together, they are participating in state-building and nation-building in South Sudan.
