Jebel Marra on the verge of humanitarian collapse as epidemic continue to harvest more lives.
Its more than three weeks since the outbreak of the rapidly spreading cases of a cute watery and bloody diarrheas, dysentery, pneumonia, measles, eye infections and unknown diseases in and a round Jebel Marra, with skyrocketing numbers of death toll and newly infected civilians the locals were forced to resort to digging herbs and using roots and bark of trees for treatment in complete absence of medicines and medical staff. The head of the health office in Jebel Marra , Mr. Abdul Aziz Adam Abdella told SLM spokesperson, that the death toll is on the rise with hundreds affected with the diseases in an environment of non – existence of any medical care whatsoever. Jebel Marra continue to suffer from non existent of lifesaving medicines and health facilities when the regime of Khartoum chased the few relief and humanitarian organizations in August 2009 and imposed its tight blockade on Jebel Marra. Today under its emergency law Khartoum arrest any traders who attempt to supply locals with consumer goods or medicines and continue to cover up the outbreak of this epidemic so that more and more civilians perish as part of its genocide policy.and ; we are calling the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons ( OPCW) to investigate the use of chemical weapons as people in Jebel Marra continue to die of unknown diseases.Moreover; we solemnly appeal the humanitarian community embodded in the United Nations and its partner organizations,EU, U.S, U.K and the troika, countries as well as individual countries in the region and worldwide to intervene and take urgent concrete steps to rescue the most vulnerable with diseases population in Jebel Marra. As the humanitarian landscape is drastically deteriorating, the human suffering in Jebel Marra has reached levels of suffering not seen even in the second world war and therefore the Sudan Liberation Movement / Army headed by Abdul Wahid Al Nour is making its last minute call to save lives in this demanding conditions and the time to act is now.
