Decades of internal conflict, political instability, extreme weather events, and economic challenges have fueled Sudan's multifaceted humanitarian crisis, causing food insecurity, malnutrition, and inadequate services. Notably, Sudan accommodates both internally displaced Sudanese and refugees from South Sudan and Ethiopia. Since 2007, Zakat Foundation has been addressing food insecurity through seasonal giving food packages, medical needs with cataract surgeries, Covid-19 relief and professional development, and sadaqah jariyah through water wells.
More recently, Zakat Foundation is providing emergency relief amidst the ongoing internal conflict which erupted in April 2023.
Recent flooding in Sudan has caused poor sanitary conditions and allowed mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria and dengue to spread.

After a leg injury and a month of uncertainty, Mohamed Issa Awad Allah's family survived on their remaining Ramadan supplies. Mohamed’s injury prompted them to travel to Shandi for medical help. Selling their possessions to cover the costly surgery, their lives dramatically changed. Now in Noor Eliman center, they live in a hallway with their 5 children, without food. A neighbor occasionally offers sustenance. Grateful for the food packages from Zakat Foundation, the family expressed their sincere gratitude to donors for supporting them in their time of need.
