Latter-day Saint Charities, the humanitarian arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is partnering with several humanitarian organizations to relieve suffering in Sudan.
In 2020, Sudan experienced its worst flooding in over a century. Thousands of homes were destroyed or badly damaged, leading to the migration of thousands of people into temporary shelters.
In addition, tens of thousands of refugees fleeing conflict in neighboring countries have arrived in Sudan with only the items they can carry.
Latter-day Saint Charities has partnered with several organizations including Rahma Worldwide, Elevate for Community Development, Mercy Corps, MedGlobal, CARE International, UNICEF and other nongovernmental organizations to address their needs and provide aid.
Together, Rahma Worldwide and Latter-day Saint Charities are providing much-needed support to Ethiopian refugees in Sudan, by distributing food baskets, blankets, mattresses, protective floor coverings and insect repellent.
In refugee camps, Latter-day Saint Charities is working with UNICEF to supply new arrivals with water, hygiene supplies and “school in a box” kits to assure that children continue to learn.
Mercy Corps and Latter-day Saint Charities provided hygiene kits to flooded-impacted villages. The kits contained soap, water cans, sleeping mats, mosquito nets, hygiene items and water purification tablets.
