The current situation in the health sector of Darfur and Eastern Chad, as well as the refugees in Cairo, Egypt, is critical and requires immediate action due to the ongoing war. It is crucial to provide urgent assistance to those in need. The Darfur Peace and Development has included this program in its efforts as it has a wide reach in the five states and Eastern Chad. The project will be led by Dr. Taqwa, who previously served as the Director of Emergency in North Darfur. This program will run from El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur, and cover Eastern Chad, Adri, and Cairo.
El Fasher has become a destination for those fleeing the war. The hospital located in El Fasher is the only hope for residents of Nyala, Kuttum, Tawilla, and other villages affected by the war to receive treatment. Unfortunately, the hospital suffers from a shortage of staff, medical supplies, and ambulance services. The dialysis center is also operating at low capacity, which only adds to the problem. It is essential to address these issues before it leads to a catastrophic situation.
To alleviate the suffering of those in need, we are partnering with the Sub-Saharan Medical School team and collaborating with the Ministry of Health in North Darfur. We aim to provide medical treatments and basic medical supplies to the affected individuals.
