There are 1.2 million people in the Nuba Mountain region of Sudan. For decades they have strived to maintain dignified lives in the face of marginalisation and devastating civil war. Since 1993, Nuba Relief, Rehabilitation and Development Organization (NRRDO) has worked to serve them all.
Now, 1.2 million people find themselves, once again, living with conflict. Many civilian lives are being lost through the use of long-range missiles, shelling and more sophisticated aerial attacks. Over 500,000 have fled their homes to the mountains, neighbouring countries and refugee camps. Of those who remain, 300,000 are estimated to be in critical need of emergency humanitarian assistance, while all struggle to maintain livelihoods and lack access to basic services such as health. 80,000 children suffer from a broken education system….

Yusif Kuwa day
On March 31st many in Nuba celebrate Yusif Kuwa day. Yusif Kuwa was the primary founder of the rebellion against the Sudan government in the Nuba Mountains. His life was dedicated to equality and freedom in Sudan. He was an example of the Nuban resilience.
Speeches, songs and traditional dancing took place around his grave site in Nuba. The current SPLM-N Governor took a moment to look at his friend’s grave as he pondered the struggle before giving his speech.
