Sudan crisis: Regional population movement

The ongoing conflict in Sudan has led hundreds of thousands of people—many of whom are women, children and older people—to flee the country to find safety across borders. Those arriving in neighbouring countries have experienced dire humanitarian conditions. Many have been caught in the crossfire and struggled to access food, water, and health services for some time. Through this Emergency Appeal, the IFRC is supporting Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in Egypt, Chad, South Sudan, Central African Republic (CAR), Ethiopia and Libya to provide essential humanitarian assistance to people fleeing Sudan.

People fleeing conflict in Sudan in April 2023 arrive across the border in neighbouringChad. Most people are women, children and older people and are setting up tents with whatever they were able to carry with them.

About this appeal

This regional Emergency Appeal focuses on supporting National Societies in countries neighbouring Sudan—Egypt, Chad, South Sudan, Central African Republic (CAR), Ethiopia and Libya—to help people fleeing the conflict.

It complements our Sudan: Complex emergency appeal, through which the IFRC is supporting the Sudanese Red Crescent to assist people who are inside Sudan.

Prior to launching this regional appeal, the IFRC had already provided support in April and May 2023 to neighbouring National Societies through our Disaster Response Emergency Fund (DREF). You can read more about this support via the following links:
