The United Nations Office of Humanitarian Affairs stated that about 14.3 million people in Sudan will need humanitarian aid in 2022.

“Two years after Sudan embarked on a path of political transition, and one year after the Juba Peace Agreement, humanitarian needs continued to grow across the country,” the statement added.
