According to Sudan’s High Council of Civil Defense, some 270,000 people throughout Sudan have been affected by flooding since June 2012, with over 36,000 homes damaged and over 14,000 houses destroyed. Kassala in eastern Sudan is the worst affected state, followed by South Darfur, Gedaref and Sennar States.

Essential medicines and acute watery diarrheal kits were distributed to health facilities in affected areas of Kassala and Darfur region.
