Conflict in Sudan: Religious Sisters Join Flight.

“Our country is now dead. Many people have lost their lives, and some have fled their homes,” Koko told Global Sisters Report by phone from El Obeid, where there has been intense fighting for the last few days. “The problem with these fighting groups is that they are now advancing their tactics by throwing grenades at people’s houses. This makes the number of people who have died unknown.”

Koko said she was terrified and worried about her life and the lives of her family, and she could escape her native Sudan to Egypt or any other country with help. The nun said the ongoing fighting had affected food supplies and disrupted access to water and electricity. Going to the market or shop to purchase food and other items was risky, she said.
