The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has warned that shortages in Khartoum, the Sudanese capital, are becoming more severe.
The OCHA has also reported that the price of basic goods has increased ‘massively’.
In a statement, the OCHA reports that shortages of food, water, medicine, and fuel have become acute, particularly in Khartoum and the surrounding areas.
The agency also pointed to steeply rising prices of basic commodities, mentioning that the price of bottled water has doubled since the start of the armed conflict between the military and Rapid Support Forces (RSF) militia on 15 April.
And, bakers across Sudan have warned of signs of a food crisis in Khartoum and the main cities, in light of their diminishing flour stocks. The closure of milling plants, and continued power outages, add to the risk.
100s of civilians have been killed due to the confrontations between the RSF and the army; many more have been injured.
Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK (AOHR UK) has called on the conflicting parties to immediately begin a ceasefire and find a peaceful solution through inclusive, national dialogue.
AOHR UK has also called the Security Council to demand an immediate ceasefire.
