Germany boosts its support for the people of Sudan with 50% increase in humanitarian assistance

Germany is proud having provided a total of EUR 61.2 million in humanitarian assistance to the people of Sudan in 2022. This marks a 50% increase from 2021, solidifying Germany’s commitment to supporting those most in need.
As the third largest donor of humanitarian assistance in Sudan (behind the US and the EU), Germany remains dedicated to continuing and strengthening its support to the Sudanese people. Germany remains the largest donor to the Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SHF), with a contribution of EUR 16, 5 million for the third consecutive year. The SHF makes funding directly available to humanitarian partners working on the ground, enabling them to timely and effectively save, assist and protect the most vulnerable. Germany recognizes the efforts of the European Union, through which Germany delivers much of its assistance. Worldwide, Germany is the second largest donors of humanitarian assistance.
We would also like to express our gratitude to our international and Sudanese partners for their tireless efforts in alleviating Sudan’s humanitarian crisis. Germany’s largest partner organisations are the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the World Food Programme (WFP), Action against Hunger (ACF), the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the German Welthungerhilfe (WHH), Plan International, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), Veterinarians without Borders, Humedica, World Vision, and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Germany’s support expresses its deep solidarity with the people of Sudan and underlines the close ties between the German and Sudanese people. Germany remains committed to continuing its support in 2023. Together, we can make a lasting difference in the lives of those affected by crisis and conflict.
