Sudan: More aid for conflict-hit families as ICRC reaffirms commitment

03/18/2015. Hundreds of thousands of people in Sudan still face great hardship, particularly in the conflict-stricken Darfur region. In the past four months, since the suspension of its work was lifted, the ICRC has gradually stepped up its activities. It has distributed food to 48,000 people in Darfur, and is helping seven limb-fitting and rehabilitation centres across the country assist people with disabilities.

Eric Marclay is head of operations for East Africa. He explains that the ICRC is now asking donors for an additional 25 million Swiss francs (about 26 million dollars) to reach more people in dire need, adding up to about 30 million Swiss francs.
