Imagine Having No Healthcare... During a Pandemic

We must help families facing starvation
We must help families facing starvation

Cases of COVID-19 are increasing in Sudan, but families in most of the rural villages of Darfur have no access to healthcare. No nurses, no doctors in the villages - no paracetamol. With no advanced equipment and hospitals miles away, there is little the Midwives and First Aid Workers you have helped us to train can do if people contract COVID-19.

Lockdown has disrupted the supply chain and shortages of basic food items like bread are causing immense hardship. Inflation is up to 143% this month. People cannot afford food, let alone soap to wash hands to try to prevent the virus. Two and a half million people across Darfur face starvation.  A food crisis has been declared in North Darfur, and children are in great need. People are hungry, poor, losing all hope. 

And now there are floods - flash floods that wash away fields, crops, belongings, animals, and houses. In Darfur where people grow what they eat, one flood will destroy your harvest.

We urgently need support so we can provide help immediately, where no one else is. Goats will mean milk for children to drink, to stop starvation and combat malnutrition. Chickens mean eggs full of protein and nutrients for the weak. Soap will enable people to wash their hands and prevent COVID-19. Social distancing is impossible where families live together in crowded huts and must travel to busy markets to trade. Soap means hope - an element of control in keeping yourself safe.

We are continuing our work training midwives and first aid workers - to provide healthcare to women and children in our villages. We train two midwives in every village we adopt - 100 villages so far.  But right now we need to provide these urgently needed items so people can survive the current immense hardship, hardship much greater than many of us have experienced this year. 

Please can you help and share this news with your friends?  We are so grateful to you for your continued support for families through hard times. Thank you all so much.
