The Sudanese Solidarity Organisation for Relief and Development aims to provide care for 10,000 orphans in South Darfur by the end of this year.

On the occasion of the “adoption ceremony” of the first 5,000 orphans in the South Darfur capital of Nyala, on Thursday, Sheikh Amir Hussein Abdelrujal, secretary-general of the Solidarity Organisation, said that the organisation will provide them with health care, education, and livelihood supporting means for their relatives.

“We want Darfur to enjoy stability, peace and prosperity, instead of tribal conflicts and fighting that caused vast numbers of orphans,” he stressed.

The Solidarity Organisation also launched a “Million Subscriber” initiative, to support orphans across the country, by collecting a monthly donation of one Sudanese pound from each subscriber.

Humanitarian workers in South Darfur have warned for a growing number of orphans and homeless in the state, owing to the ongoing attacks and tribal conflicts.

There are about 4,000 homeless in the state, according to a South Darfur government official.
