How Canada is helping

Canada is working closely with the international community and regional partners to support a peaceful resolution of the conflict. Canada calls for the resumption of dialogue towards the formation of a civilian-led transitional government. Canada urges both parties to respect any ceasefire and engage in mediation efforts supported by regional partners that promote dialogue and peace.

Canada provides international assistance in Sudan, including humanitarian assistance to meet the lifesaving needs of crisis-affected populations. This includes funding for emergency food and nutrition assistance, clean water, hygiene, sanitation, health and protection services. Canada will continue working with its humanitarian partners to support their efforts to address the needs of vulnerable people affected by violence and insecurity across the country, as the context allows.
