Muhand AbdElrahman is the fourth Sudanese Red Crescent volunteer who has been killed in the line of duty in the last two months.

With deep sorrow, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) confirms the death of Muhand AbdElrahman, the social welfare officer of the Dar Elsalam unit of the Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS). 

Muhand was shot and killed on 22 May when entering the SRCS office in Khartoum Sharg Elniel, where he was helping to coordinate other volunteers running an ongoing relief operation.   

We send our heartfelt condolences to Muhand AbdElrahman’s family and colleagues.   

Muhand AbdElrahman is the fourth SRCS volunteer to have died while on duty over the last two months, and the second in just two days. His death brings to 22 the number of Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers and staff killed while on duty worldwide this year.   

The IFRC strongly condemns violence and demands humanitarian workers be respected and protected under all circumstances. They are #NotATarget.
