  • An operations update n°1 was issued on 22nd July 2013, to provide an update of the donor response to the appeal as well as request for continued donor support for appeal.

  • An operations update n°2 was issued on 29th July 2013, to provide an overview of the operations progress to date, an update on the donor response, as well as a summary of the main recommendations from the evaluation of the emergency appeals from 2011 and 2012.

  • This 6 months operation update extends the complex emergency appeal timeframe from eight to 15 months, until end of August 2014. This will allow an internal joint assessment by Sudan Red Crescent Society (SRCS) and International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to review the progress of the appeal and undertake a revision of the activities and the budget according to the assessment findings.


During 2013, Sudan continued to experience both natural and man-made disasters including tribal clashes, armed conflicts, floods, and yellow fever. As a result, hundreds of thousands of people were severely affected or displaced within the country. In some cases the affected population had earlier been displaced by conflicts, complicating further their humanitarian situation.

Throughout 2013, the SRCS with support from the IFRC has continued to coordinate mobilization of funds and resources to assist families affected by conflicts and natural disasters in different parts of Sudan such as Khartoum, White Nile, Sinnar and Blue Nile states
