Free our friends Nazim, Almegdad and Mohammed, detained without charge in Sudan
This petition made change with 3,834 supporters!
Our Sudanese friends, Nazim Sirag, Mohammed Abdalrahman and Almegdad Fadol have been in prison without charge for 2 months in Khartoum. Nazim, a father of 2 young boys, has been on hunger strike twice in that period. They are being held in terrible conditions; 7 people in a cell 3x3m with no window or light. Their ‘crimes’ were to arrange medical support and treatment for those people who had been injured by the security forces during the peaceful protests.
No charges have been made in two months. These men should be freed immediately.
I started this petition because…
We are a team of nurses, therapists and doctors from the NHS stroke team in Cornwall. We have visited Sudan on a number of occasions between 2014 and 2018 to teach clinical teams in Sudan about stroke.
We have been privileged to work with many doctors, therapists, nurses and volunteers there and we have been overwhelmed by the compassion, care, tolerance and friendliness of the Sudanese people. We have met so many truly inspirational people there who volunteer and coordinate services to improve health and social welfare and education. Volunteers like Nazim, Almegdad and Mohammed work to provide medical aid and medications for those who cannot afford them, arrange medical missions from the UK and USA to improve knowledge and skills of Sudanese medical teams, provide food relief for the poor during Ramadan, engineering projects to ensure clean water supplies, care for orphans in Khartoum and arrange blood transfusion coordination services.
They have shown us the best values humanity has to offer. They are being held unjustly and we must fight for their freedom.
