Khartoum — The Head of the European Union delegation in Sudan, Ambassador Robert van den Dool has confirmed that the new phase of the Samarat family support programme in Jebel Aulia locality in Khartoum state last week, is one of the important components of the transitional government's reform programme, which aims to ease the economic impacts of these reforms on the Sudanese and the most vulnerable families.
