The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said that since the fighting began in mid-April in Sudan, about 5.5 million people have fled their homes in search of refuge within Sudan or neighboring countries.

OCHA said in its report that the Sudanese Ministry of Health reported that 1,265 people were killed and 8,396 others were injured as a result of the fighting between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces. Disease outbreaks have been reported across the country, including measles, malaria, dengue fever and cholera.

(OCHA) pointed out that the displaced people currently live in Gezira State in 245 primary schools, five secondary schools and 25 educational facilities, which affects attendance when schools open.

The United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in Sudan condemned the killing of displaced civilians who were caught in the crossfire during fighting in or near residential areas.
