Christian Aid decided to conclude its operations in Sudan following a comprehensive review of needs, capacities and resources in the countries where we are operating.
We are focusing on how and where we can achieve the greatest, deepest and most lasting change in the lives of poor people using the resources available to us.
What we have achieved
Christian Aid has been operating in the Sudan and the current South Sudan since the 1970s. Christian Aid played a key role in promoting the implementation of the comprehensive peace agreement which culminated in independence for South Sudan in 2011.
At national and international levels we mobilised and worked closely with churches.
We worked with partners to both help prevent and respond to conflict whilst also addressing the needs of those living with HIV who face attitudes that prevent them from accessing healthcare.
Christian Aid’s Darfur Appeal enabled us to support work including medical care and education in relief camps through Norwegian Church Aid and its Action by Churches Together/Caritas partners. This work has helped more than half a million people affected by the conflict.
Capitalising on the respect faith leaders command in the country, the Sudan Council of Churches and Gender Centre for Research and Training worked on HIV with Muslim and Christian clerics to reach thousands across Sudan.
