Caritas warns of permanent crisis in Sudan

"Sudan faces a lot of challenges. There is an ongoing humanitarian crisis. People don't have access to healthcare, education, water and protection from high levels of violence," said Bishop Eduardo Kussala of Tombura Yambio.

"Caritas and the church are the only sources of education, health and social services in many places," said the bishop.

A shaky peace holds in the South Sudan and half of the 4 million refugees who fled decades of fighting have returned to their homes. However, the number of killings is now believed to have overtaken Darfur where 300,000 people have been killed and 2.7 million uprooted.

How in God's name can the world sit by and not intervene in Darfur and end the killings and dislocation?
