Concern temporarily suspends work in Sudan
Concern Worldwide has confirmed that its 160 staff in Sudan are safe after more than three days of violent exchanges between the country’s defence forces and an armed faction which have left over 100 civilians dead.
“Our staff have been ordered to hibernate and Concern’s humanitarian work in Sudan is temporarily suspended,” Concern’s Head of International Programmes, Carol Morgan, said. “The situation in Sudan is very volatile and all staff have been ordered to remain indoors. Conditions are challenging with electricity supplies to many communities cut, and water and food supplies running low.”
Concern has worked in Sudan for the last 37 years providing a range of programmes including health, nutrition, water and sanitation, livelihoods and food security programming. Concern has teams working in West Darfur, West Kordofan and South Kordofan.
