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.
