United for Sudan is an action platform under the umbrella of the Sudan Club (Sudanese German Cultural Association e.V.) in Berlin. The platform aims to deploy the voices of first and second-generation Sudanese, who have spent most of their lives in the diaspora and are using their knowledge, connections and resources to fight against the ongoing war and its consequences. By harnessing the collective strengths of the diaspora, we aim to contribute to peace-building, provide vital humanitarian assistance and engage in advocacy to promote a sustainable future for all its people.
Since April, Sudan has been experiencing a devastating war that has left tens of thousands dead or injured and 6 million displaced. This displacement crisis is the largest of its kind in the world, and is regrettably receiving little attention or solidarity. The conflict is not only destroying countless livelihoods, but is also threatening the progress made by five years of revolutionary struggle under the slogan “Peace, Freedom, Justice.”
To mark the fifth anniversary of the Sudanese revolution, United for Sudan is organizing a day of solidarity, visibility and fundraising. We invite all allies and friends to join us on December 16 from 4 to 10 p.m. at Moos Space in Treptow (Moosdorfstrasse 7-9) to demand: “Stop the War!”
The program contains:
- Sudanese food and drinks
- Live music by Sudanese and other African musicians
- An exhibition about the revolution
- Henna painting
- Sudanese children’s choir
- A feminist movie from Sudan
The entrance fee is 5-15 euros. All proceeds from the sale of tickets and food/drinks will be donated to the organization Sudanese American Physicians Association (SAPA) to support healthcare facilities in Sudan.
There will also be a fashion show by Black designers and an African Christmas market. We look forward to seeing you there!
