Sudanese community fights for evacuations back to UK
Members of the Sudanese community in Oxford are continuing to fight to bring their families home as many remain trapped overseas.
The country was thrown into chaos by the conflict that started on 15 April and led to an exodus of foreigners.
It left many Sudanese in Egypt or other nearby countries, with few funds to get themselves or their loved ones home.
The government said it had carried out "by far the longest and largest evacuation of any Western country".
At least 850 people have been killed since the fighting began.
Nazar Yousif, from the not-for-profit organisation Sudanese in Oxford, said his inbox has been flooded with more than 65 individual cases of family members in the region struggling to be evacuated.
He called the government's response to the crisis "unacceptable" and added: "The government have said they're monitoring the situation but do not think its at Ukraine levels so they will not offer visa relaxation or any emergency visas."
Last month Nahla Abugusseisa decided to make the journey to Aswan in Egypt, a common evacuation spot for Sudanese refugees, to rescue her seriously ill mother.
