Humanitarian organizations in Sudan are to receive an additional $11.3 million from the United Kingdom government to meet the immediate needs of newly displaced people.
That’s according to the UN humanitarian Coordinator in Sudan, Ali Al-Za’atari.
The contribution was made to the Sudan Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) which supports the allocation and disbursement of emergency relief aid to Sudan under the direction of the UN Humanitarian Coordinator.
The UK’s first contribution of $16.4 million was made earlier this year to help with the country’s growing needs.
The humanitarian needs in Sudan have increased drastically during 2014 with an estimated 6.9 million people requiring relief, the UN says.
The situation has deteriorated in the province of Darfur, western Sudan, as well as the ongoing conflicts in the oil-rich South Kordofan and Blue Nile states.
The influx of refugees from South Sudan has also had an impact.
Currently CHF funded projects are providing critical assistance across Sudan, to both Internally Displaced People, refugees and host communities, especially in Darfur where approximately 64 per cent of the projects are located.
