Philanthropy's Response to the 2023 Sudan Conflict
Resources to Guide Philanthropic Response
On April 15, conflict broke out in Sudan initiated by two opposing military factions. While the majority of fighting remains in the country's capital, Khartoum, and attempts at peace talks are underway, the conflict has already resulted in the deaths of more than 500 civilians, upwards of 5,000 injured, and 100,000 and growing displaced people. Sudan was already facing difficult conditions, with one-third of its citizens relying on humanitarian assistance. Now, hospitals and infrastructure are collapsing, and the UN is warning of a potential massive refugee crisis.
