The United Nations has said that 3.03 billion dollars would be needed to provide urgent aid to people in conflict-ravaged Sudan and to over one million expected to flee into neighbouring countries this year.
The UN said that needs have soared since conflict erupted in Sudan on April 15, revising up its response plan for the country.
Head of the UN humanitarian agency’s Geneva bureau, Ramesh Rajasingham told newsmen that 25 million people, more than half the population of Sudan needs humanitarian aid and protection.
Recall that Battles erupted on April 15 between army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and his former deputy Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, who leads the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF).
The UN said a full $2.56 billion is now expected to be needed to provide assistance inside Sudan, up from the $1.75 billion estimated at the end of last year.
