Donate to our Sudan Crisis Appeal

Your donation today can help make a real difference, supporting families who have been forced to flee their homes due to conflict and are now facing yet another crisis – hunger.

Why CAFOD works in Sudan

In the west of Sudan, conflict in Darfur has driven more than two million people from their homes into refugee camps, where they are very vulnerable to coronavirus. These communities can't return to their land or rebuild their villages.

We are also supporting children whose families have been displaced by fighting in other parts of the country. We are helping to provide emergency education, and support for local families in making a living.

Our work in Sudan

Thankfully, with support from people like you CAFOD has been able to allocate over £250,000 to its work with local partners, ensuring:

  • the provision of clean toilets and places to wash and access to clean drinking water for South Sudanese people who had to leave their homes

  • cash assistance and hygiene services to support displaced people and vulnerable host communities in the White Nile state

  • support for Ethiopian refugees in East Sudan.
