The United Nations warned of shortages of food, water, medicine, and fuel in Sudan. Thousands of citizens have migrated from Sudan to the neighbouring countries of Chad and South Sudan, due to which various problems have started to arise there.
According to the Uqal website, the spokesperson of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has said that at least 20,000 Sudanese have left the country and gone to Chad, while nearly 4,000 refugees have returned to their homeland from South Sudan.
Since the clashes in the country on April 15, the situation has changed dramatically. It is feared that the number of refugees will increase further.
A spokesman for the High Commission, detailing the situation in Geneva, said it appeared the fighting would increase the number of internally and externally displaced people.
On the other hand, the spokesperson of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs pointed out that there is a severe shortage of food, water, medicine, fuel, electricity, and communication.
New reports also indicate that humanitarian aid warehouses are being looted.
The spokesman said that before the recent military activities, Sudan had reported a record increase in humanitarian needs, with around 15.8 million people in need of basic goods. This number is equal to one-third of the country’s population.
