Sudan is on the brink of civil war, as a violent clash for power threatens the lives of people in the country. Hundreds of Sudanese have been killed and many more injured in fighting that erupted in April 2023. People are fleeing the capital Khartoum and conflict-plagued Darfur region due to violence and limited access to food, water, and healthcare. Your donation to the Sudan Emergency Fund will provide emergency relief, food, water, medicine, and other essential supplies to people in need.
Sudan was already in the middle of its worst humanitarian crisis since 2011 and recent political developments are further upending the lives of millions of people in the country. Fighting between armed groups and forces is limiting peoples' abilities to safely access basic necessities, threatening lives and displacing people, including in the already violence-plagued Darfur region. Millions of refugees also reside in Sudan. Urgent support is required for these communities' survival and recovery.
All donations to this fund will support emergency relief efforts in Sudan and Sudanese displaced by fighting. Initially the fund will help local, vetted partners address the affected communities' immediate needs, such as access to food, clean water, shelter, and healthcare. The fund will later transition to focus support on longer-term recovery efforts run by local organizations.

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
