In northern Sudan, CARE is represented by CARE International Switzerland and runs programs mainly in South Darfur and South Kordofan. Its mission is to save lives by providing relief services to internally displaced people, assist conflict-affected populations to restore livelihoods, and promote peace and stability. Current activities include water and sanitation, hygiene education, primary health care, nutrition and livelihoods support.
Gender-based violence is one of the most widespread – but least recognized – human rights abuses in the world. Globally, one out of three women will be beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. This violence is happening to our sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters around the world.
This violence leaves survivors with long-term psychological and physical trauma; tears away at the social fabric of communities; and is used with terrifying effect in conflict settings, with women as the main target.
Mapping the Effects of Climate Change on Human Migration and Displacement
The importance of expanding access to financial services for the world’s poorest people is increasingly recognized.
A surge in inter-tribal fighting as well as conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces and armed movements has led to the forced displacement of more than 300,000 people since the beginning of the year, including at least 27,000 people who crossed into Chad. In addition, humanitarian assistance continues to be provided to 1,4 million people already in the 99 camps across Darfur. Source: OCHA
