Today, at 4 PM, we received confirmation that Francesco Azzarà was released.

Francesco had been kidnapped on 14th of August in Nyala, South Darfur, where he was working as a logistician at EMERGENCY Ngo's Paediatric centre.

This is a joyful day for EMERGENCY. We want to share our happiness with Francesco, with his family who has shown a strong will and great trust in our work and the Sudanese authorities' work during the last 124 days, as well as with everyone - citizens and institutions - who expressed their solidarity to Francesco, his family and EMERGENCY's work.

EMERGENCY wants to thank the Sudanese authorities who worked for Francesco's release.

In this moment of relief, EMERGENCY Ngo thinks of all the people - from Italy or other countries - still held hostage.
