One year of war in Sudan: Special report

Published on Wednesday 10 April 2024

One year after the start of the war in Sudan on April 15, 2023, the population is barely surviving. This special report is intended as a wake-up call, relaying the testimonies of SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL teams in Sudan, who are calling on the international community to immediately increase the resources allocated to the humanitarian response 

> 8.4 million people uprooted from their homes
> Sudan: definition of an impending famine
> Sudan: the day everything changed
> To denounce or to stay?

On April 15, 2023, a war in Sudan plunged the country into a major humanitarian, security, political and economic crisis. The fight opposes the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces. It began in Khartoum and quickly spread to the west of the country, with the civilian population as the first victims.

SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL, which has been working in Sudan since 2020, was quick to mobilize in support of the local population and warn of the humanitarian crisis. Food security is deteriorating at breakneck speed. A famine is predicted, because of the collapse of Sudanese agriculture and the economic precariousness of the population. More than eight million people have been uprooted from their homes, displaced by a conflict that deprives them of everything. Drinking, eating and sheltering are everyday challenges. Those who have managed to flee to neighboring countries are not much better off, because countries cannot cope alone with such an influx of destitute people.   

Everywhere, needs are urgent.

  • 43 million inhabitants
  • 172nd out of 191 countries on the Human Development Index
  • 21.000 people helped

Reading, getting information, learning, sharing and talking about it, it is already taking action!
