United Nations agencies and humanitarian partners –international and national NGOs– reached 1.7 million people in Sudan with humanitarian assistance during the first quarter of 2020.
According to the preliminary findings of the 2020 Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) quarterly monitoring, HRP partners reached 27 per cent of the 6.1 million people they aim to assist in 2020.
The Sudan 2020 HRP funding is 21 per cent, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Sudan says in its Situation Report on Thursday.
As a continuation of the trend highlighted in the 2019 HRP Periodic Monitoring Report, 95 per cent of the people assisted are in Darfur and Kordofan regions and Blue Nile state. About 73 per cent of all people assisted are in Darfur.
Response in central and eastern Sudan continues to lag. During the first quarter of this year, there were few people reached in central Sudan – about 30,400 people or two per cent of the total number of people assisted. In eastern Sudan, HRP partners reached 48,600 people or three per cent of the total assisted.
