More than 6 million people need humanitarian assistance in Sudan. Most are in Darfur, where at least 2 million people are internally displaced. In 2013, inter-tribal violence and clashes between Government forces and the armed opposition displaced close to 400,000 Darfuris -- more than in any single year since 2004. In the past two months, the situation has further deteriorated. At least 180,000 people are still displaced since February, while some 131,000 could return to their homes. Fighting in South Kordofan and Blue Nile also continues to have dire humanitarian consequences; close to 250,000 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 67,000 people have crossed the border from South Sudan since December 2013.
