October 2023 - On April 15, 2023, armed clashes broke out between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces, leading to mass displacement within and outside of Sudan, as well as significant protection violations and a lack of access to basic food, water, health, nutrition and other services for vulnerable people. The clashes have increased humanitarian needs within Sudan and its neighbouring countries, many of which had been experiencing protected crises prior to the outbreak of this conflict. With the support of GAC and other donors, WFP provides targeted food assistance to vulnerable populations to reduce acute malnutrition and food insecurity, and protect livelihoods. Project activities include: (1) distributing food and cash-based transfers; (2) providing supplementary feeding for children under the age of five years, and pregnant and lactating people; and (3) providing logistical support and enabling access to the most remote and challenging locations.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to food assistance for crisis-affected populations; (2) increased access to supplementary feeding for vulnerable groups, including children, and pregnant and lactating people; and (3) improved logistics and increased access to remote and challenging areas for humanitarian workers. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
