General context of the project

The fighting inside Sudan is having devastating humanitarian effects both inside the country and in the wider region. Sudan faces a complex set of challenges, including ongoing conflict, economic difficulties, and the weakening of critical infrastructure in areas like healthcare, banking, and telecommunications.

As of February 21, 2024, the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) due to persistent clashes between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) has reached a total of 6,326,416 individuals (1,261,060 households).

These figures make Sudan the country with the highest number of IDPs in the world.

The humanitarian situation across all 18 Sudanese states remains dire, with over 24.8 million people in need of assistance.

INTERSOS first operated in Sudan in 2004, primarily in West Darfur State (Genina, Habila, Forobaranga, Garsila, Um Kher) and Khartoum, partnering with the Italian Cooperation, UN agencies, and ECHO in the sectors of Protection, WASH, and Food Security.

The mission was closed in 2015 due to a decrease in humanitarian needs.

Despite this, INTERSOS has continued to support Sudanese refugees in neighboring countries by providing humanitarian assistance.

Given the renewed deterioration of the humanitarian situation, INTERSOS is currently working to reactivate its presence in Sudan to respond to the crisis in the country.
