Presentation of the mission

The simmering political tensions in Sudan in the aftermath of the 2021 military coup came to a tragic climax on April 15, 2023, when the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) clashed in Khartoum. The rapidly evolving nature of the conflict renders any assessment of the extent of the damages difficult, between critical infrastructure destruction, loss of human life, health sector collapse, and displacement. The UN nevertheless estimates the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) at 736.000 as of May 15, a twofold increase in two weeks, while 200.000 others sought refuge in neighboring countries including Chad, Egypt, Ethiopia, and the Central African Republic, numbers that compound an already severe IDP crisis (3.7M as of 2023). Despite numerous ceasefire attempts, and internationally mediated negotiation between the warring parties, conflict still rages in Sudan and extends beyond Khartoum to reach the traditionally vulnerable regions of Darfur, among others. While it is difficult to predict the length of the conflict, humanitarian organizations resumed operations despite precarious security conditions. The needs of the Sudanese people are extremely complex, are compounded by an array of pre-existing and newly emerged factors, and can ill afford to suffer any further delays in response.

TGH has been present in Sudan since September 2003, and opened its first project for the victims of the Darfur crisis in one of the IDPs camp in West Darfur (Riyad camp of Geneina) in June 2004. TGH has since then extended its activities in West Darfur and Central Darfur, implementing its projects through 5 offices (Geneina in West Darfur; Bindizi, Um Dukhun Golo and Zalingei in Central Darfur). 

On-hold and ongoing operations include:

TGH in Sudan is currently funded by a range of different donors: SHF, ECHO, UNHCR and the French MoFa. Negotiations are on-going with BHA and the CDCS. Potential funding might come from IOM.
