Why does UNICEF support Muslim, not Christian schools? Sudanese bishop asks

.- Bishop Daniel Adwok, Auxiliary of Khartoum (Sudan), has questioned the decision taken by UNICEF not to give funds to the Church-run “Save the saveable” educational program in his archdiocese.

“Why does UNICEF not do this, while they are giving support to government-run schools in Sudan?” the Prelate told the international Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) on July 5, during a visit to its headquarters in Germany.

The “Save the Saveable” educational program aims at ensuring primary school education for displaced children who fled from southern Sudan, where the majority of Christians live,  and where for more than 20 years a cruel war has been going on between forces loyal to the country's Islamic fundamentalist government and the SPLA/M (Sudanese People's Liberation Army/Movement).

The “Save the Saveable” program, in the current school year 2004/2005, comprises 22 schools with about 45,000  mostly Christian students. It is co-sponsored by ACN, who have supported it with a contribution of 180,000 Euros (around $210,000).
