The arrival of the fourth group of 101 Indonesian nationals evacuated from Sudan on Tuesday (2/5) marked the end of the mission of the Muhammadiyah Task Force in collaboration with the Indonesian government and some institutions to evacuate and assist Indonesians due to clashes in Sudan.
The chair of the Muhammadiyah Task Force and four Muhammadiyah Disaster Management Center (MDMC) volunteers and Lazismu (the Muhammadiyah zakat management body) welcomed the group’s arrival at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.
In press release Number 003/Satgas/TFS/V/2023, the Muhammadiyah Task Force mentioned that the service in the Hajj dormitory ended in the evening after compiling data on the evacuees.
By the evening, 924 Indonesians were evacuated from Sudan, and 127 were Muhammadiyah members. Some of them were home, including those funded by the regional government.
Furthermore, most of the Muhammadiyah members were students. They took the Program of Hadith, Quranic Sciences, Islamic Education, and the Arabic language. Regarding the uncertain future of their study in Sudan, the Muhammadiyah Task Force will invite some of them to come to Jakarta on Wednesday, May 3, to discuss it.
In addition, the Muhammadiyah Task Force thanked the Indonesian government through the Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Culture. The Task Force was glad that all Indonesian nationals arrived home safely.
