Sudan has a long-standing tradition of hosting refugees. For decades, it has kept its doors open to people fleeing war, hunger and hardship. It continues to host refugees from Eritrea, Syria, Yemen, Chad and other countries. Importantly, Sudan is one of the major hosting countries for refugees fleeing the deadly conflict in South Sudan.

South Sudanese refugees benefit from the government‘s extension of certain freedoms, including the freedom to work and to move, and from the generous support given by the host communities despite visibly being under immense pressure to share already scarce resources.

UNHCR has appealed for Sudan’s contribution to be matched with international solidarity and resources. Much more donor support is required so that we can help the hundreds of thousands of refugees in the country and the communities hosting them.
