Over the past month, Sudan has been experiencing mass flooding and this has intensified over the past few days to extreme torrential rains.
Unfortunately, at least 52 people have been killed thus far with a further 25 wounded since the beginning of the fall season.
Almost 5,345 homes have been completely destroyed with another 2,862 destroyed across the entire country.
The states of North and South Kordofan, River Nile and South Darfur are the worst hit regions with 38,000 people being affected thus far. Many of them are prone to water infectious disease with the rise of mosquitoes due to the flooding.
Last year, Sudan faced similar flooding with 314,500 people being affected across the country. Many of these people have been affected again.
Human Appeal Australia’s field office is mobilising teams on the ground to provide much needed emergency relief to the affected families.
