World Vision concerned about prospect of aid gaps in Darfur

World Vision is deeply worried that the forced departure of several large relief groups from Sudan will create gaps in critical humanitarian services to thousands of vulnerable children and adults, putting them at risk in the war-torn region of Darfur.

World Vision's work unaffected for now

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.

The scope of our assistance in Darfur

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.
