Ongoing conflict in Sudan has left millions in need of humanitarian assistance. Overall, more than 5.2 million Sudanese are internally displaced and more than 500,000 are living abroad as refugees. In Darfur, an estimated 4.2 million people are reliant on some form of international assistance due to ongoing fighting between government forces and rebel groups. Of these, an estimated 2.7 million have been forced from their homes.
CIDA's contribution is supporting the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of conflict-affected populations in Darfur and across Sudan. Activities concentrate in the key areas of health and nutrition, clean water and sanitation services, shelter, education, and child protection. This CIDA grant allows UNICEF to act flexibly to meet the needs of some of the most vulnerable populations in Sudan (particularly women and children) where needs are greatest.
This is a new feature, part of CIDA's efforts towards increasing transparency. Information will only be available for projects approved after October 15, 2011. For other projects, information on expected results is usually included in the description.
