Since April 2023, a high-level conflict opposing the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces has plunged the country into a devastating humanitarian crisis.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works independently or in partnership with the Sudanese Red Crescent society. We provide medical equipment and supplies to health structures located near or in conflict areas, help families separated by conflict keep in touch with their loved ones, and promote international humanitarian law. The ICRC also works with local water authorities on improving people’s access to clean water.

As a neutral organization, we stand ready to facilitate the evacuation of vulnerable people to safety and the release of detainees upon request of the parties to the conflict.
