What’s happening in Sudan?

On the 15th April 2023, violence broke out in Sudan’s capital Khartoum between the country’s army and a paramilitary group called the Rapid Support Forces. The situation has continued to escalate and has spread to areas across the country, including the Darfur region. Despite an agreement between the military players to have a ceasefire, the fighting has reportedly continued.


According to the World Health Organisation, more than 450 people have been killed in the conflict and 4,000 wounded so far. The country has come to a standstill with hospitals closed, citizens struggling to access basic food and sanitation supplies.


How are refugees affected?

So far, it is reported that over 700,000 people have been displaced by fighting across the country and 150,000 refugees have fled to neighboring states Chad and South Sudan as violence rages across the country (UNHCR), with some individuals traveling as far as Uganda.


Sudan is home to over one million refugees, about 75% of whom are from South Sudan, and mostly based in the Khartoum and White Nile states. According to ACAPS , 48% of the refugee population in Sudan are under 18. These communities will be directly affected by the violence.


Refugee-led response

Refugee leaders and organisations are playing a critical role in supporting their communities as things continue to unfold across the country. These groups will be particularly vulnerable and need our support urgently.


We have partnered with a number of refugee-led organisations who are working on the ground to help people fleeing the violence including I CAN SOUTH SUDAN, Sudanese Women for Peace and Development Association, and GRTR Uganda.


I CAN SOUTH SUDAN, an organisation based in South Sudan and Uganda, will be supporting refugees with the provision of clothes, food, water, shelter and other basic needs at reception centers which are being set up to receive new arrivals. Beyond immediate needs they will offering legal support and child protection services to those in need.


Your money will help organisations provide safety and important supplies to those in need. Will you support them today?
