Reports of overflowing sewage and water supplies contaminated by decomposing corpses have sparked concerns about unmanageable disease outbreaks.
Almost 16 million people in Sudan were in need of humanitarian aid even before the fighting began.
Islamic Relief has suspended our work in Khartoum, Darfur and Kordofan for the safety of our staff and the communities we serve.
We have around 270 staff in Sudan, the vast majority of whom are Sudanese, and have been sheltering with their families during this crisis.
We also have 4 international staff based in Sudan – 3 remain in Khartoum, while a Darfur-based colleague was evacuated to Chad over the weekend as part of a United Nations land evacuation.
Despite extremely challenging circumstances, we remain committed to supporting the people of Sudan, including our Sudanese colleagues.
We are calling on both sides to respect the ceasefire, ensure that civilians and aid workers are protected from violence and that humanitarian agencies can safely access people in need.
We are closely monitoring the situation and gearing up to support hospitals and provide essential aid as soon as it is safe to do so.
Islamic Relief has worked in Sudan for nearly 40 years, and remains by the sides of families caught up in the violence. Please support our life-saving work: donate to our Sudan Emergency Appeal now.
