  Sudan 
Description
As Africa's largest country, Sudan was once a major trade route between South Africa and the Mediterranean area. With its harsh deserts on one extreme and dense rain forests on the other, Sudan now is one of the least developed countries in the world. Modes of transportation range from camel trains to airplanes. Although about seven out of ten residents are Muslims, Seventh-day Adventist membership is increasing steadily—partially because of the youth who hold as their priority that "every believer is a minister." Of every four members, three are under 30 years of age. One of ADRA's largest global operations is located in Khartoum, the capital city. The nation has also benefitted from Roofs Over Africa.
