Arriving in Sudan

I’m in the capital of Sudan, Khartoum, overseeing Ummah Welfare Trust’s projects in this impoverished and vast country. Alhamdulillah Ummah Welfare Trust is on the ground working with some of the many refugees present here.

Today we’ve arranged the distribution of emergency food parcels for many families left displaced due to the ongoing conflict in South Sudan. In coordination with UNHCR reps and national government coordinators, we identified desperate families residing in refugee camps in the White Nile region of Sudan. Our food convoy, when it reaches its destination will distribute food supplies to 1,200 families, feeding around 6,000 plus people for the blessed month of Ramadhan.

With the grace of Allah, the six-truck convoy set off in the searing Sudanese sun, where today’s temperature is in the mid-forties degrees Celsius. InshaAllah it will still take the best part of a day for to reach the camps in the north. InshaAllah I will keep you updated with my visit over the 10 days.
