Sexual and ethnic violence and scorched lands then resumed in Darfur. The war has already caused thousands of deaths, destroyed Sudan’s already precarious infrastructure and displaced more than 8.5 million people, according to the UN. Added to the violence are fears of famine in this country of 48 million inhabitants. According to the World Food Program (WFP) in Darfur, where a quarter of the Sudanese population lives, “there is 78% less food compared to last year”.

The ICRC has been present in Sudan since 1978. Since April 2023, the humanitarian organization’s work has included providing medical equipment to hospitals located near or in conflict zones. It works independently or in partnership with the Sudanese Red Crescent. The ICRC also helps families separated by conflict to keep in touch with their loved ones. It also works with local authorities to improve people’s access to water, the press release specifies.
