As part of the noble humanitarian support of H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union (GWU), Chairwoman of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation (FDF), Honorary Chairperson of the ERC and the ”Mother of the Nation” to vulnerable Sudanese families during the holy month of Ramadan, two cargo flights out of three landed in Khartoum airport coming from the UAE, with 151 tonnes of foodstuff and Ramadan items onboard.
The above mentioned news article was published in Sudanese media outlets as one of many similar initiatives providing humanitarian support from abroad.
Dor me personally, I feel nauseous and embarrassed when I hear such news; it makes me feel that the Sudanese in general are vulnerable and poor.
I also feel angry that a country like Sudan, with all its resources, receives such humanitarian assistance.
It is our damned politicians to blame, who transformed Sudan from being the World Food Basket to the World Charity Basket!
Since Independence we never witnessed economic growth and the reason is those politicians who succeeded in ruling it.
All the efforts of those politicians were just to empower their political parties and develop their financial resources, besides endeavoring to satisfy political and regional axes just to obtain bread crumbs.
After World War II, relief vessels arrived into Japanese shores after its defeat following the nuclear attack.
The Japanese emperor refused the relief and sent it back with appreciation, justifying that if his country started receiving relief its people would not plant and Japan would not come out of the rubble.
Now Japan is one of the strongest economies in the globe due to the determination of its politicians and people to achieve renaissance.
We urge our officials to ban the arrival of such humanitarian relief and to seek strategic solutions to guaranteed dignified living to the Sudanese people in order to avoid paying the prices of such relief to certain axes.
