Sudan Emergency

Violent confrontations broke out in Sudan in April of 2023, leading to the displacement of almost 8 million individuals.

1,000,000 Meals for Sudan

Violent confrontations broke out in Sudan in April of 2023, leading to the displacement of almost 8 million individuals.

Since the onset of the recent clashes in April, the humanitarian situation has worsened. Approximately half of Sudan’s population, around 25 million people, require humanitarian aid and protection. Severe shortages of food, water, medicine, and fuel persist, with nearly 18 million people facing acute food insecurity.

UMR is responding to the crisis in Sudan by providing 1,000,000 meals to individuals throughout Ramadan.

By February 2024, close to 8 million people have experienced displacement. Among them, over 6 million have been displaced within Sudan itself, while more than 1.5 million have sought refuge in neighboring nations.

Sudan has also been severely impacted by extreme weather events linked to climate change, such as floods and droughts. These occurrences have adversely affected hundreds of thousands of individuals, resulting in the destruction of crops and livestock and exacerbating food insecurity.

We are relying on donors like you to help us continue our work in Sudan long after Ramadan ends.

Key Issues

This signals some optimism in the opportunity to help both local host and refugee communities re-engage in trade and overcome hardship in the foreseeable future.


Sudan serves as a source, destination and transit for irregular migration, including refugees and asylum-seekers using the East African North-bound migratory route through Libya to Europe.


The majority of people displaced by conflict live in South, North and Central Darfur states, which were hosting about 1.5 million IDPs as of the end of 2018. There were also 185,000 in South Kordofan and 47,000 in Blue Nile.


On 24 January 2020, Sudan signed a peace framework agreement with one rebel group of the SRF (Sudanese Revolutionary Front) to be followed by a comprehensive peace agreement with armed groups before mid-February 2020. The peace talks will also include consultations from IDP representatives.
