Maurice Abure

(Member Board of Directors)

Reverend Maurice Abure was born in 1962 in Yei County of Central Equatoria in South Sudan. With education background in Theology and Education, Maurice is a teacher and a preacher.  Before dedicating his time entirely to ministry, Maurice worked for close to 20 years in the humanitarian field in different locations within South Sudan. He has previously worked with United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), The World Food Program (WFP) and International Aid Sweden (IAS) among other international humanitarian agencies. Maurice’ rich and diverse background in different sectors within the humanitarian field is key to the sustainability of MASS for which he is a member of Board of Directors. Maurice has committed to work with other board members to improve the well-being of South Sudanese in localities where MASS operates. He believes that when people with common vision aimed at alleviating suffering among communities come together, greater things can be achieved. Maurice is of the opinion that for communities to be self-sustenance, their capacities to be productive ought to be enhanced in a conducive environment free from harm and fear thereby enabling their abilities to thrive.
