Ecumenical solidarity vist to Sudan

My colleague Juan Michel has written from Khartoum where he is part of the living letters ecumenical solidarity visit to Sudan.
The visit aims to be an opportunity for international ecumenical representatives to express solidarity with the Sudanese people and listen to the churches in the country. You can read more about it here.
Juan writes this:
"In Khartoum, the capital city of Sudan, it is hard for Christians to have their own place - even after they have died. The city's Christian cemetery, which has been turned into a sales park for second hand cars, illustrates well the challenges faced by the minority Christian community in the northern, predominantly Muslim part of the country."
