United Nations: The Humanitarian Crisis in Sudan will not be “Forgotten”

Agencies – Sudan Event

The Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations and Undersecretary for Humanitarian Affairs and Relief, Martin Greaves, said that the war that has been going on in Sudan since the fifteenth of last April has created a humanitarian crisis that will not be forgotten and that will be present in international attention.

The UN official stressed the need to end the war and continued, “We will say with one voice: end this war, and let us pray for that.”

Today, a special meeting was held on the humanitarian crisis in Sudan on the sidelines of the 78th United Nations General Assembly meetings at the initiative of the Sudanese Permanent Mission to the United Nations.

The meeting stressed the necessity of flowing humanitarian support to Sudan and not linking it to political agendas.

The meeting comes to follow up on funding with donors during a meeting held last June, during which a pledge and commitment were made to pay an amount of one and a half billion dollars to facilitate humanitarian aid efforts for Sudan during this war. Today’s meeting was also sponsored by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, amid a large international presence and more than 10 foreign ministers, including the UAE, Qatar and Turkey, as well as representation from Germany, America, and more than 60 participating countries, in addition to the High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and international agencies and organizations.
