Catholic Aid Group to Resume Darfur Operations

The aid organization Catholic Relief Services says it has been allowed to resume its operations in West Darfur.

The announcement came a few days after the aid group said it was halting its food program in the region following the Sudanese government’s refusal to lift a ban imposed on the group due to allegations that it was distributing Bibles.

“As of yesterday [March 28] we received the news that we would be allowed to resume operations,” Agene France-Presse quotes Catholic Relief Services spokesperson Sara Fajardo. “We are working with the local government to ensure that food distributions begin immediately.”>> Catholic Aid Group to Stop Darfur Operations by March 31
