CIndy McCain, who issued a statement after speaking to refugees from Sudan on Chad soil, as part of a visit to Chad, Togo and Benin, warned of the need to “act now to prevent Chad from becoming yet another victim of this crisis”.

According to WFP, despite increasing humanitarian needs in Sudan’s neighboring countries, funding remains scarce.

The UN agency stated that “the knock-on effect [da guerra no Sudão] will be devastating for peace and stability in a region already suffering from extreme weather shocks, insecurity and economic decline”.

More than 648,000 Sudanese have fled neighboring countries (Egypt, Chad, South Sudan, Ethiopia and the Central African Republic) since fighting broke out in Sudan last April, according to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

Last June, Chadian Prime Minister Saleh Kebzabo said Sudanese refugees were “exhausting” Chad’s “resources” and called on the international community to provide more aid.
