MADRE Echoes Sudanese Women's Call For Peace
Posted on: Friday, January 7, 2011
On January 9, the people of Southern Sudan will cast their votes to determine whether the North and South of Sudan will remain unified, or whether Southern Sudan will secede and become an independent state. On this momentous day, six years after the implementation of Sudan’s Comprehensive Peace Agreement that effectively ended the civil war between Northern and Southern Sudan, we at MADRE send our strongest wishes for peace to the women and families of Sudan.
MADRE’s Sudanese partner organization, Zenab for Women in Development, has been working tirelessly for the past months, conducting widespread community education campaigns to help ensure that the referendum is peaceful and constructive. We applaud their efforts and echo their call for peace.
