Challenging Journey to Deliver Qurbani Packages to South Sudanese Refugees

10 July 2018

ACTNews, KHARTOUM – A year has passed, but the memory is still fresh in our minds. A memory of a long difficult journey to the Sudan - South Sudan border. Early September 2017, a humanitarian mission was about to carried out. Qurbani sacrifice was about to be done in an African country named Sudan.

It was a challenging journey to deliver qurbani meat packages from Sudan, moving deeper to the southern side of the country, far away from the major cities. The distribution prioritized the refugee camps that host refugees from South Sudan.

Each of these two countries has to face different fate. In 2011, the United Nations formally acknowledged South Sudan as a new country separated from Sudan. In just two years after its independence, a conflict broke out in South Sudan.

The civil war has turned into a humanitarian crisis in South Sudan. Inflation rocketed; economy collapsed. There’s no job available, and poverty drastically rose. Even worse, an estimate number of 50,000 – 300,000 people were killed during the conflict in South Sudan.

Due to this harsh condition, millions of South Sudanese civilians fled from their country for Uganda or Sudan.

Qurbani in Kosti District, South Sudanese refugee settlement

In the first week of September 2017, Global Qurban team arrived in Sudan. From Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, the team moved further south to Kosti district, in a village named Jabalain. Lalu Agus Pujiartha, the coordinator of Global Qurban team for Sudan mentioned that the total Muslim population in Kosti reached 150,000 lives.

“Kosti District is far away from the densely populated areas. It is located in the south side of the country near the border of South Sudan. Most Muslims who evacuated to Kosti are those who fled from South Sudan. They lost their families, jobs and houses,” explained Pujiartha in September 2017.

He further added that most families who evacuated to Kosti were large families. Consequently, the population in Kosti significantly increased. “Meanwhile, the native people of Kosti also live in poverty. A number of public facilities like schools and mosques are not able to hold an immense number of population, both the natives and the refugees from South Sudan,” Pujiartha explained.

Describing the devastating condition in Kosti, Pujiartha said that the South Sudanese refugees build their makeshift tents in the middle of the desert. “The sanitary condition is bad; there is no job; we also received reports about high criminality rate. Everyone it Kosti District is hungry,” explained Pujiartha.

Eighty cows from the people of Indonesia were sacrificed in Kosti District. Moreover, some animals were also sacrificed in Bahri District in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan.

 

One of the Muslim refugees from South Sudan, Tayyeb Uthman Ibrahim, expressed his thankfulness for the arrival of Global Qurban team in Kosti. “We send prayers and gratitude for the arrival of the team from Indonesia. Thank you for delivering the qurbani meat all the way to Kosti. Every package has been distributed to the rightful recipients: refugees, widows, and the poor. May Allah reward with immense good and blessings for Indonesia,” said Ibrahim to the Global Qurban team.

A hope also came from a native Khartoum man. He hoped that Indonesia can collaborate in building the future of Sudan and South Sudan.

“We think of the future where we can help fellow Muslims to build sanitary and educational facilities, providing textbooks and professional teachers. Hopefully there will be an Indonesian mosque here so that many people will be able to pray comfortably five times a day,” said Abdur-Rahman Karrar, a Sudanese Muslim scholar from Nil-al-Abyad, Sudan.
