Nearly $1.5bn Raised For Sudan Crisis Response Insufficient, UN Says

the United Nations says international donors have pledged nearly $1.5bn in aid for the humanitarian crisis in Sudan and the neighbouring countries hosting refugees fleeing the fighting.

The UN had called on countries in Europe and the Middle East to step up aid efforts in Sudan, where the conflict between rival military factions that erupted in mid-April has forced millions of people from their homes.

Germany and Qatar were among the first nations to pledge tens of millions of dollars at a fundraising conference in Geneva on yesterday, which was also attended by representatives from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the African Union and the European Union.

The UN says its emergency aid programme requires $2.57bn in funding, meaning Monday’s pledges have fallen short. About 24.7 million people – more than half of Sudan’s population – are in need of humanitarian assistance, the UN says. 

An estimated 2.2 million people have fled their homes to safer areas elsewhere in Sudan or crossed into neighbouring countries.
