On Sunday, the European Union announced the allocation of €40 million for humanitarian aid to vulnerable people in Sudan.
The EU mission in Sudan said in a statement that the allocation confirms the EU commitment to supporting the Sudanese people.
The move comes as part of the EU’s general allocation of €294.2 million in aid to East and Southern Africa in 2022.
Regular humanitarian aid is provided by the EU to Sudanese people displaced by the conflict in the western Darfur region.
The European aid includes support in the fields of food, water, education and protection.
The Sudanese government signed a peace agreement with the rebel coalition of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) to end years of conflict in Darfur, South Kordofan, and the Blue Nile states in August 2020.
