Why is Sudan’s Humanitarian Crisis so Underfunded?

This piece originally aired on VOA Africa on August 10, 2023.

Amid the humanitarian crisis in Sudan, aid donors have provided some $1.5 billion in assistance. Nonprofit groups working in the conflict areas say that funding is inadequate, and the shortfall is causing major challenges. Meanwhile, those fleeing Sudan say the humanitarian response in neighboring countries is so bad they are returning home. Reporter Henry Wilkins looks at why this is happening and speaks with Refugees International Program Associate Mark Wood.
