The escalating crisis in Sudan, brought about by four months of war, has displaced millions and caused all sorts of problems for the people still living there.
The conflict, primarily between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces is threatening to destabilize the region and plunge Sudan into a prolonged civil war. More than 3.4 million people in Sudan have been forced to leave their homes and more than a million people to seek refuge in neighboring countries. The war has disrupted farming activities, leading to food shortages, and has strained medical supplies.
There has also been an increase in sexual assault cases with more than 4 thousand people being killed. The daily battles and attacks have put civilians at risk subjected to rampant looting and severe utility disruptions. Large sections of Sudan have been experiencing a blackout since Sunday, impacting mobile networks as well. International efforts to broker a ceasefire, led by Saudi Arabia and the United States, have failed to make progress. Relief operations by humanitarian agencies are hindered by security issues, looting, and bureaucratic obstacles.
