World’s largest hunger crisis looms in Sudan, UN warns, as humanitarian response hits ‘breaking point’

The United Nations has warned that the world’s largest hunger crisis might be on the horizon in Sudan, as the humanitarian response seems to be hitting its ‘breaking point’. Sudan is experiencing a severe economic crisis, civil unrest, and ongoing conflict. The health system has also collapsed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to an increased rise in malnutrition and food insecurity. UN agencies and their partners on the ground are facing enormous challenges with limited resources. The sharp economic contraction has made it difficult for most people to meet basic needs, as prices for basic food items have skyrocketed. The global community is urged to provide immediate humanitarian aid and financial support to ease the crisis in Sudan.
