What CARE International does in Sudan
CARE International has been working in Sudan since 1979. Initial projects focused on improving water supplies, forestry conservation, and assisting refugees fleeing war in Eritrea.
Today, we work primarily in East Darfur, South Darfur, South Kordofan, Kassala, and Khartoum, and focus on providing relief services to internally displaced people, assisting conflict-affected populations to restore livelihoods, and promoting peace and stability. Current activities include improving water and sanitation, hygiene education, primary health care, nutrition, and livelihood support.
