Sudan Context

Sudan is characterized by an extremely diverse population that has gone through successive conflicts since the country gained its independence. Under the rule of former president al-Bashir, the tragic Darfur war claimed the lives of more than 300.000 Sudanese citizens, and Sudan witnesses today a return conflict. Two coups d’état took place in quick succession starting from 2019, a year that saw the ouster of al Bashir followed by the establishment of a transition government that was in turn deposed to make way for a de facto military rule under Gen. al Burhan and Gen. Hemedti.

TGH teams in Sudan:

Prior to the conflict, TGH employed 2 international staff and approximately 100 Sudanese national to work on a variety of life saving and life sustaining emergency and peacebuilding intervention. In the wake of the ongoing conflict, TGH’s expatriate staff were evacuated while nationals sought refuge in safer areas. TGH is now regrouping to resume activity and to support Sudanese populations respond the acute needs arising from the conflict. As TGH regroups, it seeks to bolster its team with talented and committed individuals who bring an added to value to ending the suffering of the Sudanese population. Through his ECHO consortium TGH is trying to tackle acute needs of Sudanese population in Khartoum states and Darfur by answering to Health, Nutrition, WASH and Child protection needs in partnership with PUI and SI
