The ICRC has been present in Sudan since 1978, helping people affected by the conflict in Darfur, Blue Nile, South Kordofan, and East Sudan and promoting International Humanitarian Law (IHL). Our work today, independently or in cooperation with the Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS), includes supporting hospitals and health facilities with equipment and supplies, working with local water authorities on improving people’s access to clean water, and supporting the authorities who provide rehabilitation services for people with disabilities. We provide displaced people in conflict-affected areas with emergency assistance, distribute seeds and tools to farmers, and vaccinate pastoralists’ livestock against diseases. We are helping families separated by conflict or displacement keep in touch with their loved ones, and we have facilitated the release of detainees upon request of the parties and supported them with some basic assistance such as clothes and resources for their return to their area of origin.
