Join with Amnesty International to stop the killing of South Kordofan people

 

What’s happening?

People in South Kordofan are experiencing widespread human rights abuses and systematic violations including the rights to life, healthcare, education, food, safe water and adequate housing. Government forces in Sudan have committed war crimes in South Kordofan by attacking people, using indiscriminate weapons and denying people humanitarian assistance. With bombs landing in schools and hospitals the people of South Kordofan cannot get education for their children or access to adequate health care. Having been reduced to living in caves and rock crevices or hiding in foxholes to shield themselves from aerial bombardments, they also face a serious food crisis. Meanwhile, the Sudan government has cut the region off from urgently needed humanitarian assistance. All these amount to war crimes.

Amnesty International’s efforts

The people of South Kordofan wonder if the world has forgotten them and whether they matter. Amnesty International stands with them and is calling on the parties to the conflict namely the Sudan government and the SPLM-N, and urging other governments working through both the African Union and the United Nations to take immediate steps to end the attacks directed at the South Kordofan people and other serious violations of human rights, including targeted and indiscriminate attacks. The Sudan government should also allow humanitarian relief to reach the people freely. They are calling on the Government of Sudan to stop targeting civilians in the ongoing conflict.

PRFC was founded in 2001 to provide quality foster care to children and young people in NSW, including contemporary, quality, family-based foster care and effective and specialist support services to children and young people and their families.
