The International Committee of the Red Cross in a frame in 2022
Food security activities
To help people and communities recover and build resilience, the ICRC provides livelihood support to people affected by conflict and violence in Sudan, including to refugees, returnees and displaced people.
Among the activities of the ICRC, we can mention:
Registration and verification of 25,400 families (152’400 people) who will receive agricultural support to help cultivate during the main agricultural season in Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan
In 2020 and 2022, following the return of families that had fled the violence, the ICRC delivered emergency aid to 4,000 households (food and cooking utensils).
To help them resume crop production and vegetable growing, each of these families also received farming implements and groundnut, maize and bean seeds.
Between January and September 2022, the ICRC provided aid in the form of food, cash assistance, vouchers, household items and agricultural support to around 740,000 people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Visiting seven village tracts and three displacement sites across Buthidaung and Maungdaw townships, providing some 400 families with financial support, also providing food items to more than 9000 families displaced by armed conflict.
The ICRC works in close collaboration with the Yemen Red Crescent Society to support the most vulnerable rural communities to sustain their livelihoods. For example, in 2022 thousands of farmers have benefitted from multi-purpose cash grants, micro-economic initiative projects or coffee or wheat seed donations.
