Fighting in Sudan: Impact on EMERGENCY’s Facilities Across the Country
On the morning of 15 April 2023, armed conflict began in the streets of Sudan’s capital, Khartoum. Fighting has since spread throughout the country, and displaced millions.
EMERGENCY immediately reshaped its activities in Sudan.
In Khartoum, the activities of the Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery continue, albeit at a limited capacity. A network of satellite cardiology clinics have been set up outside the city to provide pre- and post-operative treatment and anti-coagulant therapies to cardiac surgery patients who cannot reach Khartoum due to the conflict.
In Port Sudan, the Paediatric Centre remains open, where we offer free treatment to children under the age of 14. The Paediatric Centres in Mayo and Nyala are closed due to security concerns.
Since August 2023, activities were reshaped within the Salam Centre complex to respond to the growing needs of the population for treatment of both war injuries and trauma from civilian causes.
EMERGENCY’s Activities in Sudan
In Sudan, we offer free care for children up to 14 years old in our Paediatric Centres in Mayo, Port Sudan and Nyala, where we also carry out a number of prevention and healthcare activities.
In the capital city, Khartoum, we have our Salam Centre: a free, specialised cardiac surgery hospital where we have so far operated on people from 33 countries.
