WHY
SUDAN

COUNTRY

BRIEF.

Despite significant natural resources, nearly one-quarter of the population of Sudan need humanitarian assistance. Sudan remains one of the poorest countries in the world with a Human Development Index of 168 out of 189 countries. This sad but sincere fact is due to over three decades of civil war and destruction. In 2019 the political unrest came to a climax, leading to an economic crisis and the fall of former President Omar Al-Bashir after three decades in power. The war is over now but the ongoing economic crisis continues to affect millions of the Sudanese population, pushing more and more people into poverty. 

 

With a population of 42 million, Sudan has 9.3 million people who go through a humanitarian crisis. There are 6.2 million food-insecure people, 2.5 million internally displaced and 2.4 million chronic malnutrition children.
