during the last week of Ramadan, a civil war broke out in Sudan
The UN refugee agency estimated the number of Sudanese fleeing to neighbouring countries would reach 860,000, and aid agencies would need $445m to assist them.
The economic situation in Sudan is also at an all-time low, after numerous natural disasters such as droughts and the most recent floods in 2021.
There are limited food resources within the country, where a third of its 46 million population are already reliant on humanitarian aid. If the violence continues, millions more will be forced into hunger.
With the ongoing conflict, people are fearing for their lives which has heavily impacted the health sector. 60 of 86 hospitals in the current conflict zones have ceased operations according to the Sudan Doctors Union.
This has had a ripple effect on the citizens who are fleeing to neighbouring countries such as Chad, South Sudan, Ethiopia & the Central African Republic.
Human Appeal International’s office in Sudan has been assisting the people there since 38 years. Our staff and volunteers there are working to aid refugees by providing them with temporary shelter, food & medical aid during these difficult times.
