Sudan: Humanitarian Snapshot (31 July 2014)
An estimated 6.9 million people need humanitarian assistance in Sudan. Most are in Darfur, where at least 2.4 million people are internally displaced. In the first half of 2014, an additional 399,000 people have been displaced following hostilities.
Fighting in South Kordofan and Blue Nile also continues to have dire humanitarian consequences; a total of 116,000 peopled have been newly displaced of which the majority have fled to areas with no access. Close to 255,000 refugees have fled into South Sudan and Ethiopia and humanitarian actors are unable to access the worst affected areas in the two states.
Meanwhile more than 85,700 people have crossed the border from South Sudan since December 2013. Heavy rains and floodings that began in late July have affected some 44,000 people across Sudan according to the Government’s Humanitarian Aid Commission.
