Greetings Card Campaign - Dr Mudawi Ibrahim Adam

The Greetings Card Campaign throughout November and December is an opportunity to show support for people facing human rights abuses.

Dr Mudawi Ibrahim Adam

Award-winning activist Dr Mudawi Ibrahim Adam has dedicated his life to exposing human rights violations, providing humanitarian support and working on development projects. Because of this work, the engineering professor has been repeatedly targeted by the Sudanese authorities.

Dr Mudawi, who in 2005 won both the Human Rights First Award and the Front Line Award for Human Rights Defenders at Risk, was arrested in December 2016. He was imprisoned for eight months on trumped-up charges, with the threat of the death penalty hanging over him.

Dr Mudawi, who suffers from chronic respiratory and heart conditions, was denied adequate medical care and
allegedly tortured. He went on hunger strike in protest against his treatment. Although Dr Mudawi was released in August, and the charges against him dropped, he remains in danger, with the Sudanese authorities continuing their relentless assault on those who speak out.

You can send a message of support to:
