RedR resumes training in Sudan

Disaster relief charity organisation RedR has resumed its operations in Sudan, which it suspended earlier this month following the expulsion of 10 relief organisations from the war-torn Darfur region.

RedR is now continuing its training programme in Khartoum and Darfur following a temporary suspension, put in place when the president of Sudan Omar Al Bashir was issued with an arrest warrant for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Al Bashir subsequently expelled 10 disaster relief organisations from Sudan, and although RedR was not among them, it suspend operations while it monitored activity.

The organisation supports NGOs and their staff operating in Sudan, providing crucial training and advice in areas such as personal safety.

RedR has been working in Sudan since 2005 and delivers on average 9 courses each month to around 113 relief workers, the large majority of whom are Sudanese nationals.

RedR is an independent, impartial organisation whose activities in Sudan exist to support the whole NGO community, ensuring crucial aid can continue to be provided to the 4.7 million people affected by the ongoing conflict in Darfur.
