Over one third of Sudan’s population facing acute food shortage

According to the World Food Programme, more than a third of Sudan’s population is now suffering extreme food insecurity, with insufficient money to address the problem.

According to the United Nations, that figure, 15 million individuals, was up seven percentage points, or roughly 3 million people, over the previous year. If present trends continue, it might reach 18 million people, or 40% of the population, by September.

“The combined consequences of violence, climatic shocks, economic and political challenges, rising expenses, and bad harvests are pushing millions of people further into hunger and poverty,” said Eddie Rowe, the World Food Programme’s Sudan representative.

“However, the financing amounts do not correspond to the humanitarian demands.”

Those who were going hungry were concentrated in war zones, especially in the Darfur nations. The biggest percentage was found in the Kreinik neighborhood, which has seen repeated rounds of violence.

Plan International, Save the Children, UNICEF, and World Vision issued a separate statement warning that 3 million Sudanese children under the age of five suffer from acute malnutrition, with an estimated 375,000 dying this year if treatment is not provided.
