March 2019 – An estimated 7.1 million people across Sudan are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection across the country as a result of armed conflict, food insecurity, malnutrition, economic decline and disease. Approximately 2 million people are internally displaced within the country. Instability around Sudan’s borders has also led to thousands seeking asylum and refuge in Sudan. The number of South Sudanese refugees in Sudan is over 844,000, making Sudan the largest host of South Sudanese. Refugees, asylum seekers and migrants from CAR, Chad, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Syria are also present, bringing the total number of refugees to 1.2 million. An estimated 5.7 million people are currently severely food insecure, with malnutrition rates over emergency thresholds. With GAC’s support, CARE Canada is providing emergency water, sanitation, hygiene, nutrition and health assistance for up to 174,504 conflict-affected people in Sudan’s East and South Darfur states. Project activities include: (1) rehabilitating and operating 7 water yards in East Darfur and constructing two mini water wells in South Darfur, providing safe water to 85,000 beneficiaries, as well as the construction of 350 household latrines; (2) supporting the operation and maintenance of 8 Outpatient Therapeutic Program (OTP) and Target Supplementary Feeding Program (TSFP) sites in East Darfur, improving nutrition outcomes for 4,410 vulnerable people; 3) rehabilitating 3 public health centers, including constructing/improving different wards and incinerators based on the relevant ministry’s standard; and (4) providing Expanded Program of Immunization (EPI) services for 2,270 children under five years of age and 1,130 pregnant or lactating women.
