Message from the Head of UNAMID on the occasion of Ramadan


Message from the Head of UNAMID on the occasion of Ramadan


EL FASHER (DARFUR), Sudan, June 26, 2014/African Press Organization (APO)/ — On behalf of the African Union – United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) and indeed on my own behalf, I would like to extend my best wishes to the Government and people of Sudan, on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan.


Ramadan is a month of worship, reflection and reconciliation; where the basic tenets of tolerance and forgiveness are integral to our fasting. I therefore hope that the observance of Ramadan this year shall bring to us the strength and the earnest will to work together to bring about peace in Darfur.


Let the people of Darfur and Sudan in general translate the essence of Islam as a religion of peace, love and compassion into action by engaging in a constructive and meaningful dialogue that leads to peace, prosperity and a better life for present and future generations.


In this spirit, I would like to renew UNAMID’s commitment to exert all possible efforts within its capability, as well as doing my utmost as Joint Chief Mediator, to support and facilitate such efforts in order to help the parties to the conflict to achieve a viable lasting peace in this region.


May the spirit of this holy month inspire and give us the desire, strength, as well as the determination to achieve durable peace and stability in Darfur.


Ramadan Kareem



United Nations – African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID)
