Sudan's Millions Suffer as Humanitarian Help Falls Short

Despite the conflict ending, millions remain displaced in Sudan with limited access to food, water, and healthcare. Humanitarian aid organizations haven't returned in full force, leaving a critical gap in basic necessities. According to the United Nations, over eight million people have already been displaced multiple times and forced to leave their homes. Additionally, it is estimated that 25 million people, which is half of the country's population, need humanitarian assistance.

Amidst the ongoing conflict between the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) in Sudan, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) teams are working tirelessly to provide essential medical care to the displaced and affected populations. At the Zalingei Teaching Hospital in Central Darfur state, MSF has reopened the emergency, maternity, inpatient therapeutic feeding center, and pediatric departments, treating over 900 emergency consultations, nearly 400 pediatric admissions, and conducting almost 100 safe deliveries in April alone.
