Sudan

CARE's work in Sudan

CARE began working in Sudan in 1979, focusing on improving water supplies, forestry and energy conservation, and assisting refugees fleeing war in Eritrea. We currently focus on South Darfur and South Kordofan, where we assist conflict-affected communities to increase agricultural productivity, improve access to scarce water, and promote hygiene education and better health care. In South Darfur, over a quarter of a million people have benefited from our food security project for internally displaced people, which ensures that women are the recipients of family rations, and from our emergency health and nutrition work and our water and sanitation projects.

About CARE

Founded in 1945 to send 'CARE packages' to people recovering from war, we have been fighting poverty in the world’s poorest countries for 70 years.

CARE's reach

We work in 79 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.

Our mission

We empower women and girls to fulfil their potential – because when one woman is helped out of poverty, she brings her family and community with her.

Your support

Your support is what makes our poverty-fighting work possible. You can trust us to spend our funds wisely and effectively to help people in need.
