The women of Darfur have prepared a tent for the breaking of the Ramadan fast (Iftar) of the protesters with locally made food (Mandola) in a special way with artistic touches.

The organisers of the breaking of the fast included the Kandakat Wadi Howar, who prepared 1,000 platters of brightly coloured decorations and then distributed them to the protesters in front the headquarters of the armed forces in Khartoum.

The Mandola contains popular dishes such as porridge beverages, beans, tomatoes and salads.

Journalist Murtada Ahmed said that the Darfuri Kandakat of Wadi Howar is a landmark in the sit-in and is one of the most popular and popular tents, where many people enjoy a variety of dishes.
