Khartoum Emergency Project: Providing Vital Support During Crisis
In the wake of clashes between Sudanese armed forces and the Rapid Support Forces, a critical situation has unfolded in Khartoum. These conflicts have triggered displacement and amplified existing vulnerabilities in Sudan's humanitarian landscape. Prior to these events, the country faced persistent environmental risks, including recurrent flooding events, droughts, and locust invasions, in addition to widespread food insecurity and economic challenges. Decades of conflict, limited investment in agricultural production, and climate shocks have resulted in cyclical food insecurity in many communities. Sudan depends on local agriculture for food security, but is hindered by floods and desertification. In Khartoum, refugees and people living in poverty face the highest rates of food insecurity in the country. At least 4 million children and pregnant and breastfeeding women are severely malnourished. About 3.7 million people are internally displaced. Within this context, the Salesian Sisters developed the Emergency Relief Project to reach assist 787 households, 3,935 children and 1,574 adults. Key Components: A) Food Distribution: We will provide essential food items to affected populations, including beans, rice, oil, sugar, and more. This distribution will be managed in collaboration with local volunteers and the Salesian Sisters Mission in Khartoum.
B) Emergency Kits and Hygiene: To ensure dignified living conditions, emergency kits containing medicine, disinfectant, and basic hygiene supplies will be distributed.
Impact: - Immediate Relief: Addressing hunger and hygiene needs during these challenging times. - Medical Support: Providing basic medical supplies to alleviate sickness and health challenges. - Collaboration: Partnering with local volunteers and organizations to maximize impact.
Projected Costs: $ 656,385
