Sudan refugee family stuck in Oxford hotel make plea for help

A mother who fled the conflict in Sudan to the UK says she is in a “bad psychological state” after being left in hotels for weeks.

Rayan Bashir was evacuated from Wadi Sayyinda military base to London with her four children.

She says the family is struggling with an insufficient weekly food budget and has been left in a hotel in Oxford with one room and no kitchen area.

Oxford City Council said it was “urgently” seeking other accommodation.

Fighting broke out in mid-April between the army and paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), leading to many civilians trying to flee.

Mrs Bashir said her husband, a British citizen, remains in Sudan, unable to escape due to militia blockades in his area.
