Qatar Has Stepped In To Pay Hospital Staff Salaries In Sudan Amid Ongoing Conflict
Qatar Charity provided the salaries to the medical personnel at Al Nou Hospital in Omdurman, Sudan from April to August as part of a larger programme that benefited 89 employees in total.
Qatar has been financing the salaries for medicals staff at the hospital since April
The administrative and medical personnel at Al Nou Hospital expressed their appreciation for Qatar Charity’s effort to assist them through a trying time when pay and incentives were temporarily suspended.
The urgently required help comes as Sudan struggles with an ongoing conflict that has tragically sparked the eviction of civilians.
This had a negative effect on the hospital’s capacity to offer crucial medical services.
What is going on to cause this conflict?
The Rapid Support Forces (RSF), led by Mohammed Hamdan Daglo, also known as Hemedti, and the Sudanese army, commanded by General Abdul Fattah Al Burhan, had been at odds for some time before the conflict broke out on April 15th.
Following the overthrow of former longtime Sudanese dictator Omar Al Bashir during the 2019 revolution, the two groups previously shared power under a four-year deal.
