Sudan has been suffering from protracted fighting for several months now. The violence has spread across the country and led to millions of people being forced from their homes, along with thousands of injuries and deaths.
For a long time, Sudan has been a host for refugees from neighbouring countries. Important aid work has been happening in refugee camps for many years with limited resources.
The conflict has put pressure on these already scarce resources, resulting in many people facing a lack of water, sanitation, food, shelter and safety.
There is an urgent need for humanitarian assistance for people displaced within Sudan and in neighbouring countries.
We must act now.
Your generous donation today means our partners in Sudan and surrounding countries can respond quickly to support vulnerable communities during this crisis.
