Shannon and I met refugees who have endured untold violence before fleeing their homes in South Kordofan– suffering from aerial bombings and attacks from ground troops for months on the orders of President Omar al-Bashir. And now, unable to plant or harvest crops without becoming a target, entire communities — men, women and children still in South Kordofan are facing the very real threat of starvation and disease as Bashir continues to block shipments of humanitarian supplies.
The situation is dire and growing worse every day. Without immediate action, families will be out of food by March. Listen to this briefing to learn more about what we saw and how you can help.
