Sudan is a country that has been going through a long-lasting war and with thousands of victims. The help of international organizations was not long in coming, including religious institutions providing humanitarian aid. But due to the gravity of the situation, volunteers had to evacuate the capital to stay safe.
One of the oldest Christian organizations in Sudan is Samaritan’s Purse, which has been in place since 1993. Its greatest contributions to the community were the installation of hospitals, food distribution centers, and the opening of schools.
This organization had to move its staff immediately from the conflict zone to a place of safety. In total, there are 17 members, including 4 Americans, and its headquarters are located in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan.
Premier Christian News, published an article with details about it:
“The British government estimates that even before the current outbreak of violence, more than 15.8 million people needed assistance. With heavy artillery and aerial bombardment hitting civilians in built-up areas, Relief International staff and three World Food Programme (WFP) staff have been killed, according to the FCDO. WFP has now suspended its operations.”
The corresponding authorities have yet to be able to solve this problem, which is why preventive evacuation measures were taken. As the weeks go by, it is hoped that humanitarian agencies will be able to resume their activities.
