Working With Children in Sudan

Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact on World Vision operations

In support of public health recommendations outlined by the World Health Organization, some sponsorship program activities have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Activities may include sponsor queries and correspondence, sponsor visits, gift notifications and gift deliveries. These temporary suspensions may affect the information you receive from us in the coming weeks and months. Learn more about our response to COVID-19.
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.
