In 2015, the ICRC continued to help hundreds of thousands of people in need of food, medical, and economic aid in Sudan.

We provided aid in the form of seeds and equipment, access to safe drinking water, medical treatment and supplies, and structural renovations. We also provided thousands of essential household items and emergency aid while working tirelessly to reconnect families separated during conflict.

258,400 people benefited from seeds and tools distribution
  109,600 people benefited from access to safe drinking water
