Help provide life-saving support for children on the brink of famine.

Over 700,000 children under five are at risk of dying.

Sudan is in the grip of its worst hunger crisis ever recorded. Families are desperate and have nothing to feed their children. While it’s yet to hit the headlines here in Australia, the situation is among the most serious we’ve seen in recent times.

Over half the population - 25 million people - are likely to face a hunger emergency in the coming months. Already, 14 areas across the country are on the verge of famine-like conditions.

Conflict broke out in Sudan in April 2023. This has increased the number of internally displaced people and refugees in neighbouring countries to more than 12 million. They need food, shelter, safety and healthcare urgently.

World Vision teams are on the ground delivering life-saving support in some of the hardest hit areas. Your donation today can help feed children at risk of starvation. You can also help provide healthcare, clean water and hygiene services, as well as child protection and mental health support.

Please act now to help stop children dying from hunger.

Ongoing conflict has led to the displacement of 10.1 million people within Sudan and 2.2 million people have fled to neighbouring countries, including Chad, South Sudan, Egypt, Ethiopia, and the Central African Republic.

Hunger and malnutrition are widespread. An estimated 25.6 million people – every second person in Sudan– needs humanitarian assistance. Of these, 6.3 million people are facing an extreme and potentially life-threatening lack of food. Over 700,000 children aged under five are at risk of dying.

Since conflict erupted in April 2023, World Vision has reached nearly 1.8 million people, mostly women and children, with emergency assistance, including food and cash assistance, health and nutrition services, and water, sanitation and hygiene.
We are currently helping people in the Blue Nile, South Darfur, East Darfur and South Kordofan regions of Sudan and looking to expand operations into Khartoum and River Nile State. We are also assisting refugees from Sudan who have fled to the neighbouring countries of Chad, South Sudan, Ethiopia and the Central African Republic.
There has been a rapid deterioration in the situation for children and families in Sudan since December 2023, with the number of people facing acute food shortages increasing by 45%.
The conflict has not only triggered mass displacement and disruption of farming and commerce, but it has also severely limited access to essential humanitarian assistance.
Health services in many areas are dysfunctional, and access to clean water and sanitation is severely limited. The fast-approaching rainy season and expected floods will likely make things even worse.
