ICVA Action Areas for the Sudan Crisis Response
The ongoing crisis in Sudan has resulted in over 860 deaths, with tens of thousands of civilians displaced and fleeing to neighboring countries. Key infrastructure and services, including health facilities and water access, have been severely impacted, leaving millions of people without access to basic necessities. The humanitarian response efforts have also been compromised, with looting of humanitarian assets and offices hindering effective action in key locations. Despite these challenges, NGOs are committed to delivering aid and support to those in need. This crisis is likely to require a protracted response, and offers an opportunity to strengthen local capacities and resilience, improve coordination, and ensure a more principled and effective response. The ICVA Secretariat is taking an approach to support NGOs during the crisis.
