 |  NCR Today

"Sudan faces a lot of challenges. There is an ongoing humanitarian crisis. People don't have access to healthcare, education, water and protection from high levels of violence," said Bishop Eduardo Kussala of Tombura Yambio.

"Caritas and the church are the only sources of education, health and social services in many places," said the bishop.
