Kadugli Office Update
It is a great sadness that the TfS office in Kadugli, South Kordofan, has been closed since fighting swept across the area in early June.None of our colleagues were injured but among items looted from our Kadugli office was a very expensive microscope essential for eye surgery during Eye Care Outreach. We remain hopeful that the microscope will be returned and that– working through the Kadugli office – we may be able to continue Eye Care Outreach in the Kadugli hospital. We hope that a colleague from our Khartoum office will be able to visit Kadugli soon. Meanwhile, our loyal guard, who was sent away by soldiers before the looting, is back in the office for which we had paid rent for several months in advance.However, our TfS Field Representative is now working in the Khartoum office. Alan and I were denied permission to go to Kadugli on our recent trip.
