Sudan

 

Sudan is a nation with a long history of conflicts, some of which are still ongoing today. It endured the longest armed conflict in Africa’s history, one that lasted over 20 years, saw an estimated two million people die, and was only ended in 2005 with the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between the Government of Sudan and the Sudanese People Liberation Army (SPLA). Despite being concluded, this conflict still has implications for Sudan as it resulted in the 2011 secession of South Sudan, along with ongoing border disputes.    


 

What We Do


Save the Children’s work in Sudan provides essential water, sanitation, hygiene, food/nutrition, and livelihood services to conflict-affected people in North/South Kordofan and Blue Nile States. An estimated 127,539 people will be reached through these activities which will contribute to:

  • Increased access to safe water and sanitation and improved hygiene practices
  • Increased access to nutritional services aimed at preventing, identifying and treating severe and moderate acute malnutrition among children and pregnant/lactating women
  • Increased access and availability of diversified food to people in situations of vulnerability
