Armed clashes between the Sudanese army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) began this morning on the streets of the capital Khartoum.
“Right now, our presence here is critical for cardiac patients in need of treatment and for surgical emergencies that cannot be treated in hospitals that have been bombed or closed.”
From Sudan, our colleagues tell us why it is necessary to stay in the country. The war that began in April continues, and fighting has compromised essential services, including healthcare.
Staying means offering care to the wounded. It means ensuring continuity of care for the cardiac patients we have operated on at the Salam Centre. It means treating hundreds of children, every day, in our paediatric centres.
EMERGENCY has always stood by the communities we serve, guaranteeing free, high-quality care to anyone who needs it.
