12/18/2020 Sudan (International Christian Concern) – The United States has followed up on the removal of Sudan from their State Sponsor of Terror list by assisting the struggling country with a 1-billion-dollar loan. This loan will help clear Sudan’s debt to the World Bank and will help open the country up to international investment and development.
This loan is a first sign for the country that the United States is committed to assisting them in the development since ending support for terror linked groups. With this loan, Sudan may be able to alleviate some of the struggles that they have been under since the start of the 27-year long designation.
As they continue to regain and rebuild their country, we hope to see Sudan continue to grow in human rights. The freedoms of speech, press and religion must be guaranteed for all of their citizens. Christians must stop suffering as second class citizens. They must be allowed to open churches, pronounce their faith, hold meetings. People must also be allowed to convert to any religion free of fear of attack or punishment. As these freedoms are increasingly guaranteed, Sudan will hopefully see greater prosperity.
