Conflict in Sudan – How Can You Help

August 30, 2023

An armed conflict between rival factions of the military government of Sudan began on 15th April 2023, when clashes broke out in cities, with the fighting concentrated around the capital city of Khartoum and the Darfur region. Now two months in, at least 883 civilians have been killed, according to official counts – though the real number is likely to be far higher, and thousands more injured. Furthermore, about 334,000 people are estimated to have been newly internally displaced within Sudan, and over 120,000 people have fled to neighbouring countries. 


How Can You Help?

The Irish Global Health Network recently held a webinar to provide a brief overview of the evolving situation in Sudan and the resulting health implications. The panellists explored the serious and varied health consequences of the conflict in Sudan including the destruction of health facilities, mass displacement, and the physical and mental health toll. They also outlined the humanitarian response and the support being provided to Sudan by the Irish health service, Irish NGOs, and Sudanese diaspora in Ireland, and highlighted some areas where the public can contribute to the response.
