News and Films From Sudan’s Frontline (Beta)


Make it news

Journalists are banned from the Nuba mountains. This makes it extremely difficult for International media to cover the war and it’s impact on civilians. Nuba Reports brings together local journalists with professional editors and mentors in order to produce verifiable and compelling dispatches from the front lines.
But for the model to work, we need your help. Make this hidden conflict visible. Make it news.

About us

Fighting broke out in June 2011 between Sudan’s government and Nuban rebels. Nuba Reports was founded by people living in the region after journalists and NGOs were banned. Our goal is to provide Sudan and the International community with credible and compelling dispatches from the front lines of this conflict and to illuminate the war’s impact on civilians. more

Amal’s Story – IRIN

A film made in partnership with IRIN’s Forgotten Conflicts Project.

Amal lost her daughter and nieces when a shell landed on the mud hut where they slept.

She was treated at the only hospital in South Kordofan. Part of her foot was amputated, but she was expected to recover. Then the hospital was bombed. Again, Amal survived. After several months of rehabilitation, she left the hospital. Her home was still vulnerable to attack so she joined her husband in the caves where much of her village now lives.

Amal’s story is part of IRIN’s new in depth series on forgotten conflicts. IRIN is an independent news organization focused on humanitarian crises around the world. For the past several months Nuba Reports and IRIN have worked together to craft stories that shed light on the conflict in South Kordofan and to help make it news.
