A Dubai resident found a mini ‘shrine’ of sorts with the Sudanese flag in Jumeirah- where someone placed envelopes giving a crash course on the recent occurrences in Sudan.
Twitter user, Ali Storz, shared the incredible photos he took after having discovered the flag under a bridge in Jumeirah.
Notes were left and in it were a series of ‘crash courses’ to help educate people on what’s been happening in Sudan
Although it is unknown who left the shrine, the purpose of it was pretty evident- and it’s to help shed light on the situation, educating those who are unaware of the crisis.
The series of letters, enclosed in envelopes and places around the flag of the Northeast African country, gave brief timelines on the occurrences that have taken place in Sudan since Monday.
We randomly found this “shrine” with the Sudanese flag under a bridge in Jumeriah (Dubai, UAE). Someone put tiny envelopes with a crash course on all the atrocities happening in Sudan.

Many of the regional and international community lauded him for his kindness.
