France to Hold April Aid Conference for War-Torn Sudan

As conflict between military rivals in Sudan continues, France announced on Wednesday that it will hold a humanitarian conference in April to deliver help to the country.

Stephane Sejourne, French Foreign Minister, told legislators that the Paris meeting will attempt to help settle the “dramatic humanitarian crisis” affecting Sudan and neighboring nations.

He did not disclose any other information regarding the seminar.

Thousands of people have killed in the conflict between Sudan’s army chief, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and his former deputy, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, commander of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, that began in April of last year.

The violence has forced 1.6 million Sudanese to migrate abroad, primarily to nearby Chad and Egypt, and displaced 6.1 million people within the country.

According to the United Nations, around 25 million people in Sudan, or more than half of the population, require aid, with nearly 18 million facing extreme food insecurity.
