A People Thriving Against Civil War and Climate Change
Sudan’s history is rife with conflict, both man-made, including the separation of South Sudan in 2011, and natural, including flood emergencies are recent as 2019. As a result, Sudan’s residents have to struggle against these strangling factors to try to make ends meet: 7.1 million people in the country require humanitarian assistance. (USAID, 2018).
With all this considered, one thing remains clear: The people of Sudan are resilient and, with the support of donors like you, families in need there can access opportunities to break the chains of poverty and move toward success.
