Sudan faces “unprecedented challenges” during worst flooding in a century

Heavy rainfall and major flooding continue to pose unprecedented challenges for disaster-stricken Sudan, where 124 people have died and nearly 830,000 injured.

Hundreds of thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed, and vast tracts of farmland were damaged shortly before harvest.

Nearly 830,000 people have been affected as torrential rains and floods continue to pose unprecedented challenges for those affected and aid funding is extremely low.

A country plagued by multiple crises, including the COVID-19 outbreak, polio and armed conflict, received only 15 percent of the $ 110 million health budget and only 22 percent of the requested $ 71.6 million health budget.

“Aid organizations are running out of support and additional funding is urgently needed,” said UN OCHA.
