Sudan: Nowhere is safe as deadly fighting escalates in El Fasher

On Friday, when the fighting began, there was heavy bombing and shooting close to the paediatric hospital, that MSF also supports. This hospital is not far from an RSF base, so the SAF were trying to destroy RSF war materials there.

There were 115 children receiving treatment in the hospital at that time. They were suffering from conditions like malaria, pneumonia, diarrhoea and malnutrition. However, when the fighting started to take place so close to the hospital, most of the patients and their caregivers vacated the premises in search of safety. Some went to South Hospital, but we do not know the whereabouts of the others.

We do know that 10 children remained in the intensive care unit (ICU), though, and that three remained in the neonatal unit. The medical team, doctors, and nurses also stayed in the hospital to continue providing treatment for these children.

On the same day of this heavy fighting, we received 160 casualties at South Hospital, including 19 children and 31 women. Twenty-five of the 160 arrived in critical condition, and sadly passed away as a result of their injuries.
