Thanks for your comment on my post Jose! The way people treat each other in their "helping" capacities is often so limited by a lack of awareness, isn't it?   You might be interested in this article I shared a while back, "Aid worker, first, know thyself." And thanks for following!

Thanks. I certainly hope that a negotiated solution or dialogue is used to help address the challenging security issues, as the region has certainly seen enough war. Feel free to post any blogs or general discussions if you would like, there are quite a few people from Sudan on the network so I am sure there would be some fascinating exchanges and ideas

Thanks. no problem. I generally meant that I think many people on the network might be interested in hearing more about your perspective on Sudan since you have significant experience.
