Konyokonyo traders donate food items to war-affected people in Sudan
The Sudanese Business Community in Konyo-Konyo Market donated assorted food items to those who fled Sudan due to conflict.
The assorted food items include bags of rice, bags of wheat flour, bags of sugar, bags of lentils, boxes of macaroni, boxes of shariya, jerricans of cooking oil, boxes of biscuits, and sachets of salt.
The items were handed to the Citizens’ Call for Emergency Evacuation and Reception of South Sudanese Trapped in Sudan’s War by Abdellaziz Mustafa, the head of the Sudanese business community concerned with helping people affected by the conflict
In an exclusive interview with The City Review, Jok Monychok, Head of Information Committee in the Citizens’ Call for Emergency Evacuation and Reception of South Sudanese Trapped in Sudan’s War, said the food items will be sent to areas affected at the borders.
“The food items will be provided to those suffering in Paloch and Renk,” Jok said.
He added that the food items will soon reach their destination at the borders for distribution.
He appreciated the Sudanese traders in the Konyo-Konyo market for their support.
He added that these food items will be distributed to those who have crossed the border to South Sudan as emergency food while the committee continues to seek more support, adding that the number of people who need help is still high at the borders.
He appealed to the public to help those affected by the conflict in Sudan.
“We are appealing to the public to put hands together so that we can help those affected by the conflict in Sudan,” he said.
He added that support of all kinds is welcome to assist those affected by the conflict, including food, nonfood, money, and transport.
The food items were received by Daniel Rech Ador, the Head of Humanitarian Affairs at Citizens’ Call for Emergency Evacuation and Reception of South Sudanese Trapped in Sudan’s War.
Over 30,000 people have crossed into South Sudan to seek refuge after war broke out in the Sudanese capital last month.
