Exacerbated Situation as Sudan Fell into War after Ukraine
The latest figure from the UN indicates that 108 million people were forcibly displaced internally and worldwide at the end of last year due to conflict, persecution and other causes. This is a record high for people displaced, let alone the large number who flee Sudan since conflict began in April. The situation in Sudan remains turbulent, and has caused close to 2 million people, half of them children, to flee within the first 10 weeks. Some have ended up in neighbouring countries such as South Sudan, Chad, Ethiopia and Central African Republic, which, being embroiled in conflict, food insecurity and refugee crisis themselves, struggle to offer sufficient assistance.
