Clashes between the military and the Rapid Support Forces have plagued Sudan for the past four months. This have led to shortages of food, water, medicine, and fuel in various regions of the country. Over three million people in Sudan have also been displaced from their homes. International reports indicate that approximately 25 million people out of the 46 million population are in need of assistance.
Distribution Planned Across Sudan’s Various Regions
In June, IHH launched a major emergency relief campaign for Sudan named Guided by Goodness, En Route to Sudan. In this campaign, IHH sent 15 containers of aid supplies including food, hygiene items and blankets to the country. The aid materials, transported by sea, have reached the port of Port Sudan. These supplies will be distributed across the North, South, Central, and East Darfur provinces, as well as the Nile, Blue Nile, Khartoum, Gezira, and the Northern states.
Press Conference Prior to Distribution
A press conference was held before aid distribution was launched. It was participated by Sudan's Minister of Culture, Communication, and Media Garham Abd al Gadr; Deputy Minister of Social Affairs and Development Jamal al Nail; Chairman of the Emergency Committee Major General Azhari Abas; IHH Sudan Representative Bilal Bahçi; foundation officials; press members; and Sudanese citizens.
In the press conference, Jamal al-Nail expressed his gratitude to IHH and its donors for their humanitarian efforts. Nail emphasized that the aid packages have been designated for distribution in Sudan's nine provinces. He highlighted that the aid distribution has been tailored according to the specific needs of each region, with coordination between provincial authorities and IHH teams. Nail reaffirmed the country’s dedication in ensuring the swift delivery of aid to its intended recipients.
