Rushing Food to Sudan

SUDAN —Samaritan’s Purse is rushing food and relief to displaced people in Kordofan, Sudan, before spring rains make roads to the region inaccessible. They are providing much-needed food and hygiene training to those who fled to the region to escape war. “The needs are enormous,” said Collins Enabu, a Samaritan’s Purse staff member. “We’re running out of time.”

Collins EnabuSamaritan’s Purse:

We are currently here in Kordofan State, Sudan. The authorities are reporting that there are over 600,000 people who have moved to this place, escaping the fighting.

One of the biggest challenges in the camps right now is lack of food. Samaritan’s Purse is responding by distributing food to some of these women and children who have been affected. Working closely with the health staff to ensure that children who have been affected by malnutrition are being tended to.

Samaritan’s Purse has opened up mobile clinics in these camps, providing different kinds of health care. We’re providing medicines to IDPs [internally displaced persons] who are sick, and also doing hygiene promotions so that people understand why it’s not good to do open defecations in the camps, because when the rains start, it’s probably going to cause cholera as well.

The needs are enormous, and we are running out of time. When the rains start, most of these areas become unaccessible. but we believe that God is going to help us address all those needs. So continue to pray that we are able to achieve this before the rains start so that we address the needs of so many people who are being affected by this conflict in Sudan.
