The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is working with partners to respond to the worsening situation in and around Sudan where humanitarian needs are at an all-time high. 

Massive displacement – both within and across the country’s borders – has been triggered by the eruption of fighting. IOM is delivering life-saving aid to vulnerable people who are unable to leave worst-hit areas in Sudan, as well as in neighbouring countries where those fleeing the violence require urgent support.  

IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) has active operations in Chad, Central African Republic, South Sudan and Ethiopia providing updates on population mobility, including displacement and cross border mobility. 

IOM is part of the core humanitarian team established in Port Sudan, responsible for overseeing humanitarian operations in the country, and is scaling up its response as the crisis continues to evolve. The IOM crisis response plan for Sudan (2023) outlines the Organization’s preparedness and response priorities, as well as resource requirements for a rapid delivery of aid. 

While the situation remains critical, IOM stands in solidarity with the people of Sudan through this extremely difficult time.

Sudan Needs Urgent Relief and Support

The people of Sudan are facing a devastating crisis, with the latest outbreak of fighting adding to an already dire humanitarian situation. With an estimated 16 million people - one-third of the population - in need of some aid, the situation is particularly dire for children and lactating mothers, with 4 million already severely malnourished before the renewed violence.

Reports of attacks on hospitals and vital infrastructure such as water and electricity facilities are extremely concerning, and it is heartbreaking to hear of the deaths of humanitarian workers who are risking their lives to help those in need.
