Keep Humanitarian Aid In Sudan



From Mercy Corps:

On Wednesday, the government of Sudan asked several humanitarian aid agencies, including Mercy Corps, to suspend operations in Darfur, a move that would threaten humanitarian assistance to millions of vulnerable men, women and children.

Mercy Corps provides lifesaving support to more than 200,000 people in displacement camps who have been forced from their homes by the violence in Darfur. Help keep aid workers where they are most needed in Sudan.

Add your name to the petition to ask United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to urge the government of Sudan to reverse its decision.

Please help, by signing this petition, and spreading the word.
Our participation is vital.

We could have expected this backlash. After all, the international community is calling for Omar al-Bashir's head.

I believe that this is just the beginning of Bashir's resistance to the warrant. Since making the people suffer has not been a problem to him before now-this is not an unexpected move.

Hopefully the international community can put the heat on to help keep the people safe while he is brought to justice.
