Khartoum, 2 October 2018. The United Nations Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator (RC/HC) in Sudan, Gwi-Yeop Son, welcomed a three-month unilateral cessation of hostilities by the Sudan Liberation Army – Abdul Wahid (SLA-AW). This allowed access to an area in East Jebel Marra that had been affected by a landslide earlier in September. “The United Nations welcomes the unilateral ceasefire by the SLA-AW that enabled the United Nations to provide emergency assistance to about 380 people,” said Ms. Son.
