Appeal: 9,000 Displaced in Blue Nile face Starvation

Appeal: 9,000 Displaced in Blue Nile face Starvation

HART is running an urgent appeal to raise £30,000 for 9,000 internally displaced people who face starvation.

HART visited the Blue Nile in January 2018 and discovered a dire humanitarian situation.

9,000 internally displaced people had fled their homes due to conflict and are now barely surviving off ground nuts, bits of grass and roots with no nutritional value.

We aim to raise £30,000 to send sacks of emergency sorghum (a common grain) and cooking oil to 9,000 people to help them survive until the next harvest in March. 

HART was the first NGO to visit the IDPs in Wadaka. One lady told us,

“We lost everything. On the journey, some people were injured. They took all our cattle. We fled without anything. When we came here, there was nobody to help us.”

For more information, read our full report here.

 

Help feed displaced families and donate now. Thank You.
