Sudan: Humanitarian Snapshot (30 September 2014)

The number of people in need of humanitarian assistance has risen by 800,000 since the start of 2014 (as of July 2014). This is in addition to some 6.1 million people who required humanitarian assistance at the start of 2014. These new humanitarian needs have primarily been generated by the displacement of over 400,000 people in Darfur, the arrival of almost 100,000 refugees from South Sudan and alarming levels of malnutrition, with the GAM rate for Sudan exceeding the 15% emergency threshold.
