Republic of Sudan

Why are we in the Republic of Sudan? Over 46.5% of the Republic of Sudan's population is living below the poverty line and 5.5 million are in need of humanitarian assistance. We are implementing emergency relief and longer-term development programmes in West Darfur, along with West and South Kordofan.

Years of conflict in the Republic of Sudan has resulted in large displacement

Poor economic growth due to sanctions and harsh environments have placed Sudan in the lowest quintile in the Human Development Index. It is estimated that 5.5 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, of which 1.9 million are internally displaced people. Over 46.5% of the population are living below the poverty line.

Our emergency programming focuses on supporting the most vulnerable with access to health and nutrition services while providing communities with access to safe drinking water and sanitation facilities. We also run 'Community Management of Acute Malnutrition' (CMAM) feeding centres. In Darfur, we are working with the community on building resilience to climate change.
