KHARTOUM May 12: The humanitarian situation in Sudan has continued to deteriorate, driven by protracted displacement, economic crisis, increased intercommunal conflict, dry spells, and food insecurity.
In April 2022, over 75,000 people were newly displaced across Sudan, including 72,200 people in Darfur (55,764* people in West Darfur) and 16,400 people in other locations, as a result of localised conflicts.
World Food Programme (WFP) plans to distribute food to over 130,210 people affected by the conflict in Kereneik. Including some 12,400 people from the nomad community. Humanitarian partners are identifying urgent priorities and working to scale up response.
In 2022, humanitarian partners aim to assist and support 10.9 million vulnerable people at the cost of US$1.9 billion. As of 30 April, the 2022 Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan received US$232.9 million — 12 per cent of the requirement.
