STORYLINE
Tens of thousands of refugees and host communities are displaced by flooding in Sudan. UNHCR and partners are providing emergency assistance but more support is urgently needed.

Months after its creation, Alganaa refugee camp in Sudan’s White Nile State has been submerged by flood waters, leaving some 30,000 South Sudanese refugees in need of urgent assistance. The refugees fled, finding sanctuary with relatives and friends, and in public facilities like schools and hospitals. Neighbouring South Sudan, where the majority of the refugees in Sudan come from, is also experiencing the worst flooding the country has seen in decades. The floods which engulfed Alganaa flowed into Sudan following heavy rains in South Sudan’s Upper Nile State.

80,000 people including 35,000 refugees in Sudan have been affected by flooding.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Yahia Ahmed, Host community member:
“We have been living in this area since the 1950s, this event is unprecedented. Occasionally we had flash floods, but it was not like this. This is the first time that this has happened.”

UNHCR and partners are providing lifesaving assistance. Algana’a camp was submerged. Many refugees have been relocated to other camps.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Sunday Rock, South Sudanese Refugee:
“We are very proud that when displaced refugees came, we agreed to help them because at the end of the day they are brothers and sisters, we came from the same country. We shared with them whatever we could.”

More support is urgently needed to reach those displaced.
