Marina Peter

Chair of Sudan and South Sudan Forum e.V.

Marina fell in love with Sudan "by coincidence" 29 years ago. Being a teacher of German and history, trained in intercultural education, she knew almost nothing about the country, except that it had "hot weather and refugees". But getting a job with the development agency of the Protestant Church in Germany was the beginning of a learning experience that would make her one of the most recognized ecumenical experts on Sudan and South Sudan. Today she works with Bread for the World and chairs the Sudan and South Sudan Forum e. V.
