Sudan

Working with Children in Sudan

World Vision’s history in Sudan dates back to 1983 when it was operational for five years before 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.

Some of our recent accomplishments in Sudan include: 280,089 people benefitting from food assistance; 186,572 people benefitting from cash transfers that gave families the freedom and ability to meet their immediate household needs; 24,794 people participating in trainings, counseling and activities teaching healthy nutrition and feeding practices; and 21,656 people gaining access to sanitation facilities at home or school.
