NRC Sudan Annual Report 2022

Published 22. Feb 2023
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) in Sudan is pleased to present its 2022 Annual Report.

In Sudan, we serve people affected by war and displacement across the country. Our objective is to alleviate their hardship, restore their dignity and protection and equip them to achieve durable solutions and self-reliance.

Our expertise covers: Camp Management, Education, Emergency Response, Information Counselling and Legal Assistance, Livelihood and Food Security, Shelter, and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene. We also strive to work with local markets and economies, environmentally sound and regenerative designs, innovative policy and diplomatic advocacy, increasing use of digital technologies and data, and improved systems for aid integrity and compliance.

2022 was the Norwegian Refugee Council’s second full year of operation in Sudan. Through 300 staff, we assisted more than 248,000 people in some of the most desperate parts of the country – a 39 per cent increase over 2021. Today, we operate across six states, delivering assistance to people affected by war and displacement. From responding to new emergencies to attending to protracted and neglected displacement situations, we strive to provide support where the most pressing needs are.

Our offices are based in the state capitals of West Darfur, North Darfur, South Kordofan, White Nile, Gedaref and Khartoum. But we do our utmost to reach vulnerable communities in hard-to-reach places by establishing field offices, dispatching mobile teams and working with a network of partners and volunteers.

We could not have done any of this without support from our partners – local partners, suppliers and service providers, authorities, diplomats, technical partners, principled peer NGOs, supporters from the general public, community-based volunteers, and our donors. In particular, we thank the European Union, the governments of Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States of America, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and the Education Cannot Wait Fund for their support and critical resources for our country operation. Most importantly, we thank all the community-based volunteers that work with us.
