Women Power in Blue Nile

WomenAmbassador Susan Blankhart of the Netherlands is very active and visible in social media where we get to know that she has been invited for a typical Sudanese gada (lunch) or she has visited a potato farm in Omdurman. But this time social media announced about the challenge she took to swim across the Blue Nile. On Saturday 21st November at around 4 pm she along with six Dutch women and seven Sudanese girls swam across Blue Nile. The message she gave was that women should not be afraid to swim in the Nile in fear of getting drowned. This event named Crossing the Nile was supported by organizations like Nile Swimmers, Sea Scouts and the Dutch Don’t Drown Foundation.women2
