One year of conflict has cast Sudan into a catastrophic humanitarian crisis 

One year on since the conflict in Sudan began the country faces a “catastrophic humanitarian crisis”, according to girls’ rights organisation Plan International. The conflict, which began on 15 April last year, has now killed over 13,900 people and left 25 million people in need of humanitarian assistance – 14 million of these are children. Over 8.4 million people have been displaced, of whom 1.7 million have fled to neighbouring countries.

Massive increase in aid to Gaza desperately needed to stop children dying from starvation

Children are dying from starvation in Gaza. We’re calling for an immediate, unconditional and permanent ceasefire and a massive increase in humanitarian assistance. The Australian Government must reinstate funding immediately to UNRWA – the main aid provider for the 1.1 million children facing starvation in Gaza – and must prioritise delivering lifesaving aid to people in Gaza.
