Right now, women in Sudan are in imminent danger.
Over the last several weeks, there has been intensifying conflict and instability unfolding in Sudan, with heavy artillery bombardments between two rival military groups engaged in open warfare. As a result, millions of women and girls are at risk.
Hundreds have been killed, thousands wounded, and others are trapped in their homes without access to basic necessities such as electricity, food, and running water. The fighting shows no signs of stopping, and supplies are running low. To make matters worse, climate-related catastrophes like severe flooding and increased droughts have led to the destruction of farmlands and the outbreak of disease like cholera—making it progressively challenging for women to obtain essential resources for survival.
