Our license to operate in Sudan has not been affected at this point in time, and World Vision's staff members plan to continue providing life-saving food, water, sanitation, medical care, and other humanitarian services to more than 500,000 people in South Darfur.
We will also continue running humanitarian, recovery, and development programs in the regions of Khartoum State, Blue Nile State, and Southern Sudan.
World Vision currently provides monthly food rations to more than 300,000 internally displaced persons in camps and in conflict-affected areas of South Darfur. Our teams also run supplemental feeding centers, primary health clinics, clean water and improved sanitation programs, temporary schools, Child-Friendly Spaces, and vocational training for women.
Our staff members are deeply concerned about the prospect of fewer humanitarian resources at a time when needs remain critical in war-ravaged Darfur. We encourage donors to continue supporting aid programs for people in need in this region.
| Please pray for children and families in Darfur who have been displaced and lack access to basic necessities. Pray also for World Vision's efforts to provide assistance to these people in a time when the forced departure of other aid agencies may create a severe gap in humanitarian services.|
