U.N. Predicts Conflict in Sudan Will Produce 1.8 Million New Refugees by Year’s End

HeadlineSep 05, 2023

The U.N. Refugee Agency is warning as many as 1.8 million people will flee Sudan by the end of the year as fighting continues between rival military factions. The U.N. estimates the conflict has already displaced about 1 million people, and another 800,000 are expected to leave Sudan in the coming months. Meanwhile, Doctors Without Borders is reporting Sudanese refugees arriving in South Sudan are suffering from an alarming rise of measles and malnutrition. In the Sudanese capital of Khartoum, many residents say they cannot afford basic necessities, including bread.

Amany: “Bread is available, but people cannot buy it. The loaf of bread costs 70 Sudanese pounds, or 12 U.S. cents. People cannot afford it. This price is too high for them.”
