Right now the situation on the Chad-Sudan border is very delicate. The cause is the civil war that broke out in Chad last spring.
The percentage of people escaping the conflict is high and life conditions are worsening. Doctors Without Borders show in this instagram video how this is a very difficult situation on a sanitary and human level. They also declare that there are at least 358.000 people who have crossed the border towards more pacific areas.
Basic resources are scarce and all associations and humanitarian organizations have to take action and give urgent support in response to the emergency conditions of the people who are housed in the refugee camp of Adré and in those set up in the surrounding areas (source: https://www.avvenire.it/mondo/pagine/sudan-dimenticato).
We would also like to share the video published by the Sole24Ore newspaper, which shows what is happening in the refugee camp from above: https://stream24.ilsole24ore.com/video/italia/ciad-immagini-campo-profughi-adre-ospita-200mila-persone/AFJTh3a
The UN has also talked about it: https://unric.org/it/sudan-incontro-bruxelles/
The news about the conflict in Chad have gone into the background compared to other topics and people are not familiar with the dramatic situation: we invite everyone to share video and articles that talk about this conflict, in order to bring to light to what is happening outside of our borders in countries that seem far away but that need our help.
“African Pace Project” is one of the activities that the volunteer Organization Donk Humanitarian Medicine is activating. The project started thanks to the collaboration with the hospital La Renaissance, located in N’djamena, the National University Hospital (CHU-RN), the University Hospital Complex Le Bon Samaritain (CHU-BS) and the sponsorship of the University of Geneva. The field of the project is interventional cardiology, the coordinator is Filippo Ciampa and it has been realized thanks to the funding of the Autonomous region Friuli-Venezia Giulia and the funding obtained with the 8×1000 of the Waldensian Church.
