EU Vows Aid for Sudan for ’As Long as It Takes’
Local Editor

Even as global donors reduce their aid offerings to war-torn Sudan, the European Union vowed to provide the African country with humanitarian assistance for "as long as it takes".

On Monday, the EU offered a new 106-million-euro [$124 million] aid package to Sudan at a time when the United Nations managed to raise only 39 percent of its overall 2017 aid appeal for the country, where millions still live on foreign aid.

"There is no doubt that the overall humanitarian situation in Sudan remains very concerning," the EU's Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid, Christos Stylianides, told AFP in an interview late on Monday after wrapping up a two-day visit to Sudan including to parts of conflict-wracked Darfur.

"We will continue to provide this assistance as long as it takes."

Urging other global donors to follow the EU, Stylianides said it was justified to aid Sudan as it has millions of displaced people who need assistance and hosts almost a million refugees, half of them South Sudanese.

Tens of thousands of people have been killed and millions displaced in Sudan's three conflict areas of Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan due to fierce fighting between government forces and rebels.

Some 461,000 refugees have also arrived in Sudan since December 2013 when a brutal civil war erupted in South Sudan, the world's youngest country formed after it split from the north in 2011.
