SKYPE call to Nuba Mountains 3-24-2012 as reported by Apaulo
We were able to get our call through LAST weekend!
The bombing continues.
- On Sunday, March 18, 2012,
the Antonov dropped four bombs in Kalkada Village and killed one
woman. Her body was ripped to
shreds and totally destroyed. Her
four children are now orphans. Who
will take care of them?
- On the same day, the Antonov dropped
three more bombs in Alazirag. This
time there were no causalities.
- March 22, Kalkada was bombed by the
Antonov. No one was killed or
injured. In Kauda, the Antonov and
Migs dropped two bombs inside Kauda and three bombs outside Kauda. One child and one man were injured. The Mig dropped three bombs inside Kauda
on the airstrip. The full extent of
the damage is not known at this time.
- On March 23, a Mig bombed
Mendi Village, but no one was hurt.
The Antonov (bomber) was flying over their heads every day and

will drop bombs and which time it is just a fly over.

but please being food for the children who are crying and have nothing to
There is no clean, disease free water nearby. People walk many miles for clean water. A Jerry can full of water weighs 40
The rainy season is about to begin. It is time for the people in the Nuba
Mountains to prepare the farms for planting.
No one is doing it. They live in
constant fear and terror of bombs and missiles and soldiers and
starvation. As long as this continues,
there will be no crops planted.
George Clooney, hear us. We need you.
