In the Darfur region of Sudan, a four-year conflict between rebel groups and the government has driven more than 2.45 million people into temporary camps—and more than 200,000 have been killed. World Vision has provided humanitarian assistance to war-affected children and adults in Darfur since June 2004. Our current programs are located in Southern Darfur.

World Vision is the WFP’s largest Cooperating Partner in South Darfur, employing 400 Sudanese national staff and about 30 expatriate staff from more than 10 countries.
