    Originally I’m an English teacher in Darfur, the area of conflicts, I’m volunteering work in UNAMID, the organization located in Al-Fasher (the capital of the state) I experienced the sufferings of my community. As UNV, also my contract is going to finish in JUNE 2019. I used to help the people around me with the small living allowance. right now, I initiated small NGO under the name of Humanitarian Call for Development. I’m really in need of support to rescue people in my area. if any of the documents are needed I’ll send it.
    My gratefulness for the concern.
