Fug National Katherine, who works at Alight, the humanitarian aid organization, wrote in this week and asked us to share the following about the current situation in Sudan, which we were more than happy to do: “The situation in Sudan is increasingly dire. There is particular need for humanitarian aid and access to health services. I’m wondering if you might consider giving folks a primer on the situation and letting them know that Alight is on the ground responding with critical support in areas where staff are able to be a bit more mobile.”
