United Nations agencies and humanitarian partners – international and national NGOs – reached 1.7 million people in Sudan with humanitarian assistance during the first quarter of 2020, according to the preliminary findings of the 2020 Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) quarterly monitoring. During the first three months of the year, HRP partners reached 27 per cent of the 6.1 million people that they aim to assist in 2020. The overwhelming majority of people assisted – 95 per cent – is in Darfur and Kordofan regions and Blue Nile State. About 73 per cent of all people assisted were in Darfur. Response in central and eastern Sudan continues to lag. During the 1st quarter of 2020, there were few people reached in central Sudan – about 30,400 people or two per cent of the total number of people assisted. In eastern Sudan, HRP partners reached 48,600 people or three per cent of the total assisted.
