THE FLOODS IN SUDAN
The extreme difficulties that many Sudanese people face makes them among the most vulnerable and needy populations in the area. As the country suffers from severe poverty, challenging environment, and lack of proper infrastructure, the lower class of the population are enduring hard humanitarian conditions. Our response to the situation in Sudan makes a great impact across several different sectors. We distribute medicine, food, protective items to combat the rainy seasons and disease infested insects, and many other items depending on the seasonal needs. We also dig water wells to supply populated villages with water to water their crops, wash their clothes and quench their thirst. Additionally, we responded to the recent Ethiopian refugee displacement to Sudan fleeing from the civil unrest in their countries. We tackled the tricky environment and dangerous route to reach the desolate Ethiopian refugee camp that no other NGO was able to reach.
Continuing political unrest hinders and impedes the role of international and non-governmental organizations in providing aid. Several social classes are on the brink of famine. Desertification and recurring droughts have reduced water resources and led to conflict.
Many local and international non-governmental organizations went to dig wells and construct temporary dams and reservoirs.
