Sudan Needs Urgent Relief and Support
Donate today to help provide urgent relief and support to the people of Sudan and nearby countries.
The people of Sudan are facing a devastating crisis, with the latest outbreak of fighting adding to an already dire humanitarian situation. With an estimated 16 million people - one-third of the population - in need of some form of aid, the situation is particularly dire for children and lactating mothers, with 4 million already severely malnourished prior to the renewed violence. Reports of attacks on hospitals and vital infrastructure such as water and electricity facilities are extremely concerning, and it is heartbreaking to hear of the deaths of humanitarian workers who are risking their lives to help those in need.
We cannot turn a blind eye to this crisis. It is imperative that we take action and support the people of Sudan and nearby countries. Your donation can help provide life-saving aid such as food, water, shelter, and medical supplies to those who need it the most. Every little bit helps, and together we can make a difference. Let us stand in solidarity with the people of Sudan and nearby countries and send a message that they are not alone in their time of need.
100% of your donations go to life-saving assistance on the ground.
