One year of war in Sudan: almost 9 million people displaced

It's been one year since Sudan fell into a country-wide conflict that has left almost 9 million people displaced from their homes.

A power struggle between two groups in the country has led to what the UN Refugee Agency has called “one of the largest and most
challenging humanitarian and displacement crises in the world.”

The world is beset with crises, many that garner much more attention than the crisis in Sudan for a multitud of factors. But not because of the scale of the crisis or the depth of misery. In this regard, the Sudan crisis has few equals.

More than 23,000 people have been killed and, according to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification, about 5 million Sudanese are starving.

Even Pope Francis has called on the international community to be aware of the dramatic situation in the country.

For several months, Sudan has been in the grip of a civil war that shows no sign of letting up and is causing numerous casualties, millions of internally displaced persons and refugees in neighboring countries and a very serious humanitarian situation.

The last time a pope visited the country was in 1993 when John Paul II made his 9th trip to the African continent to meet with the nation's president.

Sudan is an important country for many others worldwide due to its rich natural resources and location.

As a result, just a few days ago, the European Union hosted a conference in Paris to gather more humanitarian aid and appeal for an end to the conflict. The result is that more than 2 billion dollars are being sent to support the civilian Sudanese population.
