Gunshots and bombing—the sounds of war—echoed across Sudan’s capital city of Khartoum on April 15. This marked the beginning of a civil war in Sudan. Since then, the fighting has spread to other parts of the country, bringing widespread loss and suffering. Hundreds of people have been killed, and more than 2 million have fled their homes. Throngs are crossing into countries like Egypt, South Sudan, or Chad, arriving in makeshift refugee camps with little more than the clothes they are wearing. Many others who cannot afford to leave Sudan face ongoing terror and critical shortages of food, water, medicine, and fuel.
