Although the suspension of its activities in Sudan was lifted at the end of 2014, and despite the fact that important quantities of aid were delivered in 2015 – including to communities living in and around the Jebel Marra – the ICRC has not been able to fully resume its operations thus far. Discussions with authorities in Sudan on the full resumption of ICRC activities are taking longer than initially expected. However, the ICRC is committed to do more and to that end continues to engage proactively with Sudanese authorities. Project agreements have been signed with the Sudanese Red Crescent Society in 2015 to engage in joint communication activities, capacity building in international humanitarian law and reuniting families separated by conflict. In addition, the ICRC is supporting the physical rehabilitation programme of the National Authority for Prosthetics and Orthotics, with technical advice and imported raw material to improve the quality of services for disabled people in Sudan.
