Relief Efforts in Sudan

CARE began working in Sudan in 1979, focusing on improving water supplies, forestry and energy conservation, and assisting refugees fleeing war in Eritrea. We currently focus on South Darfur and South Kordofan, where we assist conflict-affected communities to increase agricultural productivity, improve access to scarce water and financial resources, and promote hygiene education, better health care and lives free from violence.

In South Darfur, over a quarter of a million people have benefited from our food security project for internally displaced people, which ensures that women are the recipients of family rations, and from our emergency health and nutrition work and our water and sanitation projects.
