In response to the urgent humanitarian crisis unfolding in Sudan, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has committed additional resources to help feed and provide core relief items to hundreds of thousands of refugees in the region.
A $4.25 million donation to the World Food Programme (WFP) will supply food rations such as cereals, oil, legumes, supplemental bars and ready-to-eat meals to those living in refugee camps in Sudan and in the bordering countries of South Sudan, Chad, Ethiopia and Egypt. An additional $4 million will be provided to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to provide shelter and core relief items such as blankets, kitchen sets, sleeping mats, mosquito nets and solar lamps.
Violent conflicts that began in Khartoum, Sudan, in April 2023 forced families to flee their homes and villages in search of safety. Since then, more than 4.8 million people have been displaced by the conflict, including two million children. The situation has increased an already dire food and water insecurity crisis. There is also an urgent need for shelter and health care.
These latest donations continue the Church’s commitment to provide relief to the hungry around the world.
