A Short History of Sudan

On this page, you will find content we have found to contain useful, revelant and interesting information: news, links, books and Twitter accounts. If you think an important resource is missing, please let us know.

Sudan is home to the Meroe pyramids, ancient structure up to 4,600 years old. There are more pyramids in Sudan (about 200) than there are in the whole of Egypt. Sudan became independent in 1956, and the country was the largest African country prior to the secession of the south in 2011. On 30 June 1989, Colonel Omar al-Bashir led a military coup and later became a one-party state. In February 2003, the war in Darfur (a region in western Sudan) started and the Government of Sudan carried out genocide against Darfur civilians: 480,000 people have been killed, and over 2.6 million people are displaced. Since then the economic and humanitarian situations have deteriorated, human rights violations and restrictions of freedom of expression have also increased.

Dr. Tom Catena, Mother of Mercy Hospital, Nuba Mountains - Sudan

Dr. Tom Catena’s patients come to him from hundreds of miles away on foot, in carts, or often cradled in their mother’s arms. Welcome to the Nuba Mountains of Sudan, an area of the world so void of humanitarian and media attention that years of war go ignored, and cries for help go largely unheard. Here, this lone American surgeon tends with equal compassion to patients ranging from malnutrition and leprosy, to grave wounds inflicted by the indiscriminate bombings ordered by their own president, Omar al-Bashir. When a government can attack defenseless men, women and children with supersonic bombers, and it doesn’t make anyone’s newswire, something is terribly awry... More information here
