New United Nations warnings on the Sudan

The United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mr. Martin Griffiths, said via X that nearly 5 million people in the Sudan were facing hunger, warning that things would deteriorate as the conflict between the army and the Rapid Support Forces continued.

Griffith announced the allocation of $15 million from the United Nations Central Emergency Fund to address the Sudan’s food crisis.

Ms. Lenny Kinsley, spokeswoman for the World Food Programme in the Sudan, said last month that the Sudan was facing one of the world’s worst hunger crises.

The Sudan has been in constant conflict between the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and the army for 10 months, displacing millions according to United Nations estimates, including 3.5 million children.
