A delegation from HART (Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust) recently returned from visits to the war zones of Blue Nile and Southern Kordofan (Nuba Mountains) in Sudan.

Speaking in Parliament, Baroness Cox said: “I witnessed daily aerial bombardments by the Khartoum Government that directly targeted civilians with 500 kilogram and incendiary bombs, destroying villages, markets and schools, inflicting death and injury on women and children, forcing thousands to hide in caves with deadly snakes and to die from hunger and disease with no health care; and causing nearly 200,000 refugees to flee to camps in South Sudan”

 A full report and press release from the visit can be downloaded below.
