Sudan

Working With Children in Sudan

World Vision’s history in Sudan dates back to 1983 when it was operational for five years until closing in 1988. We resumed operations in Sudan in 2004 in response to the Darfur crisis. As the work has evolved we’ve opened field offices in Khartoum and Blue Nile states.

In Sudan, the support of the Government of Canada, along with individual Canadians, allows us to run relief, recovery and development programs that benefit more than 1.5 million people directly and indirectly. We provide services in the sectors of food aid, water and sanitation, health and nutrition, gender development education and agriculture and natural resource management. Clan conflict can restrict access to humanitarian efforts but we are in it for the long haul. Our goal is to benefit 2.5 million children in Sudan by 2020.
