Livelihoods for Families Through Livestock, Sudan

by Relief International Vetted since 2008


This project will provide food and medicine to save the lives of donkeys and other livestock in Darfur, as they are vital to the population's survival and a key component of household wealth.

Donkeys are a key asset and source of income for the population in Darfur. Yet displaced villagers have lost 60 to 90% of their livestock during the recent violence, mostly due to theft, killing and lack of vital support. Because donkey market prices have increased 100 times since the start of the conflict, Darfurians need a practical support program to save their livestock. This project will target the most vulnerable families, including female-led households, as the primary beneficiaries.


RI will provide animal healthcare and fodder provision for 6,000 donkeys in North Darfur, corresponding to roughly 30,000 individual beneficiaries. This activity will result in improved health and a higher survival rate for essential livestock.

Long-Term Impact

This project will save vulnerable livestock in Darfur, thus improving the population’s economic standing and food security. It will make women safer by reducing the length of high-risk excursions for water and firewood.
