More than a million people in Darfur will go without food rations by May unless new aid agencies are deployed, a joint Sudanese-UN assessment says. BBC News

My heart aches for all those in desprate need of medical and humanitarian aid! and what is our world doing to support them? Former U.S. president, George W. Bush was hesitent to call the events in Darfur genocide! The Arab community is supporting Omar Albashir, Sudan’s president, and welcoming him to their countries!! He is said to arrive to Cairo, Egypt and has been invited by Qatar to attend the Arab Summit to be held in Doha!!! Then Ayman Alzawahiri, AlQaeda’s 2nd man in command, that the Sudanese policy is weak towards the west and the infedels and to start training, preparing and planning for long wars and flights against “the non-beleivers”!!!!

Oh and it doesn’t stop here! After the International Criminal Court indicted Albashir with war crimes and set out an arrest order, the Sudanese president ordered all foreign aid agencies to leave Sudan!! He promised that within a year time all aid work in Sudan will be through Sudanese aid organizations to their fellow Sudanese. He failed to tell people that in Sudan the four big aid organizations are operated by the Sudanese president and his wives [from a BBC radio interview with Sudanese opposition] … This calls for a BIG JUMBO question mark?

Amongst all this mess what we’re left with is the U.N.’s estimate that

1.5 million people in Darfur are dependent on healthcare support, 1.1 million need regular food aid, and another 1 million are in need of clean drinking water. CNN.com

You and I may not have the political power to directly help Darfur’s people, but we sure have hope, prayer, and our voices … Don’t stop … Keep hope alive!
