Christians from Sudan visit UN community

Today, the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations hosted with Caritas Internationalis partners from the Diocese of El Obeid who spoke about their work in the Nuba Mountains region of Sudan.  A briefing with nongovernmental and governmental partners was hosted this afternoon followed by an appointment with a UN agency.

The partners brought the message forward for three advocacy priorities:

1)   Immediately cease all military operations, including aerial bombardment

2)   Allow safe and unhindered access for international humanitarian actors to all civilians and to provide prompt humanitarian assistance to all those in need

3)   Demand that all parties of the conflict seek to find a peaceful solution to the conflict

The group represents one of the few operational medical facilities and the only hospital still preforming surgeries in the region.  The war has increased the need in the hospital while international staff have been evacuated.

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has been in ministry with the people of Sudan for over 100 years.  The Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations continues to hold the people of Sudan and South Sudan in prayer and advocate based on the policies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) General Assembly.
