SUDAN CONFLICT – WORKING WITH INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL CORPS
outbreak of armed conflict in April involving rival
factions of the military government in Sudan, tens of
thousands have been killed or injured, some 2.6 million
had been internally displaced and 730,000 others had fled
the country as refugees. The International Medical
Corps (IMC) has worked in Sudan since 2004, providing
health, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)
services. Sudan, once the largest and one of the most
geographically diverse states in Africa, split into two
countries in July 2011, after the people of the south
voted for independence.
Today, tribal conflict and inter-communal violence continue to severely affect civilians, especially women and children. Millions remain in displacement camps, relying almost entirely on humanitarian aid for basic services.
Since 2015 Rotary charity Water Survival Box has partnered with IMC providing consignments of Water Survival Boxes (WSBS) for displaced families in the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, the Philippines, Ukraine, the Yemen, Somalia and Turkey.
Our latest consignment of 200 WSBs is now on its way to Sudan where the in-country IMC team will ensure distribution to families most in need.

The aid boxes have now arrived in Jordan but are encountering some slight delays.
