Sudan: Humanitarian Snapshot (31 August 2013)
In Darfur, over two million people have been internally displaced as a result of conflict since 2003. In addition, there are over 300,000 Darfuri refugees in Chad. Exact numbers of displaced people are hard to determine as some have been displaced on multiple occasions, some were displaced temporarily while others remained displaced for many years, and some are in camps while others are in host communities or left the area. In South Kordofan and Blue Nile, well over a million people have been displaced or severely affected by conflict since 2011. The majority remain in Sudan, while some 225,000 fled to South Sudan or Ethiopia. Figures below are for people targeted for humanitarian assistance by humanitarian organizations in Sudan. The map also shows Sudanese refugees in neighbouring countries.
