Emergency Medical Aid for Sudan

£385,590 of £500,000 goal

Raised by 21,688 people in 5 months
Created December 29, 2018
In the ongoing protests and unrest currently taking place in Sudan, people are struggling to access food, basic amenities, and emergency healthcare.

Given the violent governmental and military response to the protests, wherein live ammunition has been fired at protestors, this gofundme has been set up by the diaspora in Manchester, UK, to support the people in the most need.

Funds will be used to support the victims by purchasing emergency medical supplies and supporting hospitals caring for the injured. Many have already lost their lives in the violence, and countless more injured. It is our hope that by supporting medical services in this difficult time, we can stand in solidarity with the people of Sudan.

Based in Manchester, UK, a committee of local Sudanese has been created to coordinate the fundraising, and we are grateful for all your help. Committee Treasurer, Dr Izzeldin Hammou will withdraw the funds and transfer them to the Sudanese Doctors Union  (SDU-UK&I)  - a registered professional body which will then allocate the funds to those in need via its Sudanese counterpart. An official SDU-UK&I statement verifying our relationship with them can be found at: https://www.sdu.org.uk/news/sdu-uk-statement-on-crowdfunding-campaigns

Please support by donating as much as you can, and sharing with as many people as possible. We also ask that you work with us to spread the word of what is happening to the Sudanese people, so that their stories are heard.

Thank you.
